The Victor Herbert Renaissance Project LIVE! is the world’s only company exclusively devoted to Victor Herbert, the Irish-American conductor and musician who composed innovative scores for early Broadway, as well as classical and popular music. Herbert contributed powerfully to the emergence of an authentically 20th century American sound; and did so lavishly, producing 43 operettas, 2 operas, and innumerable compositions for orchestra, band, cello, violin and piano.
VHRP LIVE! is a registered 501(c)(3) corporation founded in 2014 by the company’s Artistic Director Alyce Mott, a leading Herbert historian and librettist, and Music Director Michael Thomas. In addition, VHRP LIVE! comprises a core group of classically trained singers who perform regularly in well regarded classical music venues in New York City, nationally and internationally.
VHRP LIVE! is supported by generous funding from The Victor Herbert Foundation.
