Rodgers & Hammerstein 

When: Sat., Feb. 8, 8 p.m. 2014

If you can't remember the last time a Broadway show tune crossed over to pop radio, you're definitely not alone. Yet there was an era when Tin Pan Alley publishing houses employed largely anonymous songwriters to churn out a steady stream of music that would move from Broadway to the airwaves. In that same tradition, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein scored a run of popular musicals throughout the '40s and '50s — from Oklahoma to The Sound of Music — that yielded such Great American Songbook classics as "My Favorite Things," "Oh What a Beautiful Morning" and "You'll Never Walk Alone." Tonight, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic will revisit their legacy at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com) with its Philharmonic Pops concert, featuring conductor Thomas Wilson and vocalists William Michals, Lisa Vroman and Gary Mauer. Showtime is 8, with tickets ranging from $19 to $71. — Bill Forman
