“Rodgers & Hammerstein at the Movies” features pristine film prints straight from the vaults of the legendary Hollywood studios.

Melbourne Community Orchestra president, Jana Doss, knows how Americans feel about Rodgers & Hammerstein.

“Their musical collaboration defined the American musical,” said Doss.  “Their music and lyrics are permanently etched onto our hearts.  You just can’t hear one of their songs without singing along.”

An additional free performance toasting the music and film of the songwriting duo will be presented at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 3 at the Scott Center Auditorium at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, 5625 Holy Trinity Drive in Suntree.
