Special Pops Concert to Pay Tribute to ‘The Wonderful Music of Oz’
L. Frank Baum's classic novel, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," took the world by storm upon its publication on May 17, 1900. The beloved classic is still enchanting readers and music lovers today – more than 100 years later. Fans now can celebrate all the music based on the original tale in one magical concert event. "The Wonderful Music of Oz" pays tribute to the story as told on Broadway ("Wicked," "The Wiz"), in Hollywood ("The Wizard of Oz," "Return to Oz") and on the radio ("Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Tin Man"). Defy gravity and travel over the rainbow as we take a musical journey down the yellow brick road with a cast of New York's top vocalists. There's no place like home and there's no show like "The Wonderful Music of Oz."
The show is 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 12 at the Ocean City Music Pier. Tickets are $20 to $25 and are available at oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice, by calling (609) 399-6111, or in-person at the City Hall Welcome Center, the Roy Gillian Welcome Center on the Route 52 causeway and the Ocean City Music Pier Box Office.
