GORDON JENKINS' "MANHATTAN TOWER”:
A 70TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

In 1946, a composer and conductor named Gordon Jenkins invented the modern “concept” album with MANHATTAN TOWER, an original work for orchestra, narrator, and solo singers that became the spiritual grandfather of such classics as SGT PEPPER, PET SOUNDS, and TOMMY. Tonight, we celebrate this classic work (the subject of a recent article in The Wall Street Journal by our host and producer Will Friedwald) with an all-star cast (to be announced) and rare, vintage videos.
