Contest: Win Tickets to Defying Gravity


Update: The contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered here and on Twitter. The winner was picked at random. Congratulations @MDinda!

Time for another contest! I'm giving away a pair of tickets to Defying Gravity: The Music of Stephen Schwartz and Eric Whitacre at Avery Fisher Hall on Sunday, March 30, at 2 p.m. Accomplished composer and conductor Eric Whitacre conducts over 250 voices in his annual concert collaboration with Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY). Stephen Schwartz (he wrote some musicals you might have heard of, like Wicked, Pippin, and Godspell) and Broadway's original Mary Poppins, Ashley Brown, guest star. Not only do I have a pair of tickets to give away, but the winner will also receive a signed poster and two reception passes for the post-concert open bar/buffet dinner which will be attended by Schwartz and Whitacre. Pretty cool, right? Thanks so much to DCINY for providing.

In order to win, leave a comment on this post or tweet me @PataphysicalSci telling me your favorite Schwartz-penned melody. If you enter on Twitter, you must be following to win. A winner will be chosen at random from all the entries on Friday, February 28, at 5 p.m. Please include your e-mail address or Twitter handle in the comments so I have a way to contact you if you win. Good luck!

My absolute favorite has got to be "Day by Day" from "Godspell"!

My favorite changes every other month. Right now I'm obsessed with Pippin's "Morning Glow."

Too many to choose from, but one not mentioned so far is "Lost in the Wilderness" from CHILDREN OF EDEN. I'm also really partial to the newly composed linking section ("The Lamp of the Body") in the middle of "Learn Your Lessons Well" from the most recent GODSPELL revival.

Probably "Spark of Creation" from Children of Eden...but I really love "No Good Deed" from Wicked, too.
