Allan Sherman's 'The End of A Symphony'

Hat Tip to my twitter friend, Sarah @oldZorah, for this hilarious and ingenious skit by the brilliant Allan Sherman -  "The End Of A Symphony". 

Allan Sherman  [1924 -1973]

From Wikipedia:  "Allan Sherman was an American comedy writer, television producer, singer and actor who became famous as a song parodist in the early 1960s. His first album, My Son, the Folk Singer (1962), became the fastest-selling record album up to that time.[2] His biggest hit single was "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh", a comic novelty in which a boy describes his summer camp experiences to the tune of Ponchielli's Dance of the Hours."

As we love classical music on this blog I thought this would be a great video to share.
