Meet the Stars – V-log hosted by Leslie Stifelman
A V-log series created for Carnegie Hall where Leslie takes you behind the scenes to meet cast members of hit Broadway shows including Godspell, Peter and the Starcatcher and Chicago and unveils the mysteries of musical theater.
I was thrilled when The Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall invited me to be a lead teaching artist for their new online invention “Musical Exchange.” Through this network I would not only give interactive classes online, but could also use my creativity to find new ways of engaging student learning and musical activity. As the Music Director and Conductor for Chicago: The Musical I have been afforded the opportunity to work with an international company of wonderful actors, singers and dancers as well as get to know many others throughout the Broadway community. As the song says “thereʼs no people like show people,” and my generous colleagues have jumped at the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with our online community. So I created this series of videos to give our students an up close and personal connection to their Broadway idols. There are a great many of our students on the exchange who have expressed their overwhelming desire to be on Broadway someday. What better way for students to learn then through the example of others who have already made their dreams come true.
