Boston Musical Theater has ceased operations as of July 2012. We cannot say goodbye to one another, or to our audience, without thanking all of you for your years of commitment to BMT and for coming to hear us time and again. It as been, in David Ripley’s words, “a remarkable musical journey.” As artists we have lived and worked together, traveled to foreign lands where we performed American music for international audiences and taught master classes to Russian and Korean students.
Here, at home, we have performed in several colleges and retirement homes as well as in our public venues. Beginning with our rehearsals we have all enjoyed working together, always learning from one another. We have worked with many distinguished guest artists but the core group, Mara Bonde, David Ripley, Dan Loschen (our musical director and arranger), Rich Appleman and Bertram Lehmann have built the solid foundation upon which we stand with pride.
I salute them all and thank them for the many years they have consistently turned my musical fantasies into an audible reality.
