Sheldon Harnick stops by!

Three-time Tony Award-winning lyricist Sheldon Harnick received a Pulitzer Prize in Drama for Fiorello! in 1960.

It was an honor to have him in the audience of MSM’s production of Fiorello! 60 years after it opened on Broadway!

Fiorello! at Carnegie Hall!

The 2018/2019 school year marked the Centennial anniversary of Manhattan School of Music — a milestone that was celebrated throughout each semester, culminating in a final performance at Carnegie Hall. Raffaela Cicchetti, a Fiorello! cast member, was invited to perform in front of a sold out Isaac Stern Auditorium and she sounded wonderful!
