Acclaim for Play Ball! (Casey at the Bat)

  • “In ‘Play Ball!,’ FamilyMusik® has a hit — a home run, in fact. ... Kapilow’s setting of Ernest L. Thayer’s 1888 text mingles familiar ballpark melodies with a touch of Chopin’s “Funeral March” and some splendid mock-Handelian flourishes. The music is clever ... After the performance was over there was an exuberant ovation. ... Nobody wanted to leave.”
