The Other Side of Broadway is a project dedicated to the performance of classical music written by established and emerging theatre composers. Through our entertaining and educational concerts The Other Side of Broadway seeks to develop new audiences for musical theatre, classical music, and cabaret, and to provide an outlet through which theatre composers can have their little known but worthy classical ‘other side’ heard.
We believe that our performances help bridge the gaps between areas of music that need not be separated. David Amram says it best: “There are no walls between true music built to last—purity of intent, hard work, joyful participation, and clarity of execution are all that are important to create work of enduring value that is also entertaining.”
