The ASCAP Foundation Jerry Herman Broadway Legacy Prize
The ASCAP Foundation Jerry Herman Broadway Legacy Prize was created as part the nationwide series of concerts and educational programs made possible by ASCAP member Jerry Herman. Herman is best known as the composer/lyricist of the iconic musicals Hello Dolly!, Mame and La Cage aux Folles. Entitled Jerry Herman: The Broadway Legacy Concert, each performance will feature a full symphony orchestra and star Broadway performers including Debbie Gravite, Jason Graae, Klea Blackhurst and Scott Coulter. Recipients of the Prize are high school and university students chosen from a musical theater performing master class held in each touring city and hosted by the Jerry Herman Broadway performers. One local student is then selected by a panel of performers and mentors to perform in the concert.
