An Evening with the Music of Henry Mancini
 
 Music Appreciation
Henry Mancini, one of the most versatile talents in music, achieved fame as a composer of music for film and television scores. He was nominated for 72 Grammy Awards and won 20, nominated for 18 Academy Awards and won four and received the Golden Globe Award. Before Mancini, film scores were created in the formal European style. Beginning in the 1960s with the Baby Boomer and the Kennedy-era generation, Mancini created a sophisticated style of mainstream pop and cool modern jazz. His film scores include “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “The Pink Panther,” “Days of Wine and Roses,” “Charade,” “Victor/Victoria,” “10” and “The Glass Menagerie.” His television themes and scores include “The Thorn Birds,” “Mr. Lucky,” “Colombo” and “Peter Gunn.” He recorded over 90 albums, eight of which were certified gold. Some of his famous songs and compositions were “Charade,” “Dear Heart,” “Pink Panther Theme,” “The Days of Wine and Roses,” “Moon River” and “Mr. Lucky.” This class will focus on his film and television scores and songs.
