Well, when you get someone like Broadway composing sensation Stephen Schwartz to give you an autograph, you can't really hand him a napkin to sign. Right?
So, to help auction off a 7' Baldwin grand piano in support of Opera Manhattan's mission to develop emerging artists in NYC, he took Sharpee to piano and wrote a little ditty.
To date, other autographs collected include:
World renowned conductor Maestro Anton Coppola, who, at the brisk young age of 94, took a nice long stroll through 12 blocks of NYC just to lend his name and be the first to sign.
Just below him, adding her amazing support and voice to the project is the Metropolitan Opera star for 41 seasons (1950-1991), Soprano Lucine Amara.
Additional stars adding their names to the cause include:
Bulgarian Tenor Boiko Zvetanov
Baritone Daniel Sutin
American Tenor John Easterlin
