Will Friedwald's "70 Years of Manhattan Tower"

  • Urban Stages Theater 259 West 30th Street New York, NY, 10001 United States (map)

On Thursday, December 8th, the Wall Street Journal's Will Friedwald will host an evening celebrating the 70th anniversary of composer/conductor Gordon Jenkin's "Manhattan Tower"- an album that Friedwald describes as having "invented the concept album".

The show is part of the Winter Rhythms Series at Urban Stages and will combine live performances along with rare & classic video clips. 2016 is the 70th anniversary of the original album from 1946, AND the 60th anniversary of the “complete” hi-fi edition of the work (as well as the NBC TV production).
