Elf: The Broadway Musical Piano/Vocal Selections Songbook Released by Alfred Music Publishing

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, November 03, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases the highly anticipated Elf: The Broadway Musical, a collection of piano/vocal sheet music from the side-splitting musical based on the popular holiday motion picture, scored by the Tony®-nominated (The Wedding Singer) writers Chad Beguelin (lyrics) and Matthew Sklar (music).

Elf: The Broadway Musical is the companion songbook to the Original Broadway Cast Recording, which debuts November 1, 2011, on Ghostlight Records, featuring all the memorable tunes from the musical, such as “Sparklejollytwinklejingley,” “A Christmas Song,” including the rowdy romp “Nobody Cares About Santa.” The collectible songbook, which includes photos from the original Broadway production, allows vocalists and pianists to apply their talent to the entertaining songs of this hilarious and endearing holiday tale.

First delighting Broadway audiences during the 2010 holiday season, Elf: The Broadway Musical is now a perennial favorite with new theatrical productions scheduled in major markets everywhere. The score is reviewed by The New York Times’ Charles Isherwood as “. . . polished and hummable. Chad Beguelin’s lyrics have a bright comic zest and are well-matched to Matthew Sklar’s gently swinging music.”
