The Brill Building in Manhattan was the epicenter of the American music scene from the World War II era through the 1960s. This site was home to some of the most prolific popular composers, many of whom went on to become well-known singer-songwriters and recording artists in the 1970s. In fact, Carole King, Paul Simon, Neil Diamond, Burt Bacharach, and Neil Sedaka all got their start in the Brill Building. Fabulous singers Jenna Rubaii, John-Mark McGaha, Nicole Kaplan, and David Toole join the Spanish River Orchestra to tell some of the Brill-insider stories and to celebrate the renowned artists who paid their dues at this historical institution.
