A Super Birthday! – Residents and friends joined in a tribute performance to celebrate the 90th birthday of one of America’s most beloved music-makers, Richard Sherman
It was a small world indeed last weekend at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, where residents and friends joined in a tribute performance to celebrate the 90th birthday of one of America’s most beloved music-makers, Richard Sherman. Noted for the Grammy Award and Academy Award-winning Mary Poppins score, the Sherman Brothers were also Grammy-nominated for six other scores and won another Grammy for Winnie The Pooh. They were nominated seven more times for an Oscar and five times for the Golden Globe Award. They also wrote the globally-recognized theme for Disney’s It’s a Small World for the 1964 New York World’s Fair exhibit. The Sherman Brothers were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York City in 2005.
