Alfred Music Publishing Remembers The Fantasticks with 50th Anniversary Vocal Score

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Friday, June 25, 2010

Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922, is thrilled to pay tribute to Broadway’s longest-running musicial with the release of a special The Fantasticks: Complete Vocal Score 50th Anniversary Edition.

With memorable songs such as “Try to Remember” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain,” The Fantasticks has been entertaining Broadway audiences for half a century. Now, Alfred Music Publishing is presenting a special 50th anniversary edition of the vocal score, personally approved by lyricist Tom Jones and composer Harvey Schmidt. The score incorporates subtle but important corrections applied by Music Theatre International, which licenses The Fantasticks for professional and amateur productions.

Handsomely bound with a lay-flat spine that is designed to easily stay open on a pianist’s music rack, this piano/vocal reduction includes the entire score, from the rousing overture and time-honored songs to the finale and exit music.

The Fantasticks: Complete Vocal Score (50th Anniversary Edition) is now available for $60.00. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today at
