A major musical celebration is coming to Doylestown, Pennsylvania's historic Highland Farm this July. In conjunction with Doylestown Township’s bicentennial celebration, and coinciding with Oscar Hammerstein II’s 123rd birthday, song leader Jessie Barth and Open Sky Founder Lori Rosolowsky will present a multi-generational sing-along celebrating the lyricist’s most treasured songs: Oscar & Us. This SING!, which is free and open to the public, will feature several notable guests, including Arun Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson, and Julie Henning, who lived with Pearl Buck as her adopted daughter.
Saturday, July 14, 2018
11:30am to 2:00pm
at Highland Farm
70 East Road
Oscar Hammerstein II was one of the twentieth century’s most influential lyricists, and his collaborations with composer Richard Rodgers include some of the most successful musicals in the history of the American theatre—including The Sound of Music, South Pacific, The King and I, and Carousel. In 1940, three years before the Broadway debut of Oklahoma!, he purchased Highland Farm on East Road in Doylestown, and he lived there with his family until his passing in 1960. The residence was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. Mr. Hammerstein is one of Doylestown’s many notable residents who have made profound humanitarian and artistic contributions.
