Nathan Gunn performs The Polar Express

Nathan Gunn
Two of the most famous children’s classics have been turned into a musical extravaganza by composer Rob Kapilow and recorded for posterity. Barihunk Nathan Gunn sings The Polar Express while Isabel Leonard sings Gertrude McFuzz. They are accompanied by the Metamorphosis Chamber Orchestra and members of the Broadway Youth Ensemble.

With The Polar Express Kapilow took fragments from traditional Christmas carols and weaved them into various parts of the score. He also created musical scenes with the book’s illustrations with the hope that you can follow along with book in hand. Pre-orders of the CD are now available on Amazon and will be available on November 1st.
