Tony-Award Nominee Receives Frost Distinguished Alumnus Award

University of Miami rolled out the red-carpet Monday for three-time Tony award nominee Joshua Henry, who returned to Gusman Hall receive the Frost School of Music Distinguished Alumnus Award.

“I am so grateful to be here to accept this award,” says Henry. “I want to thank the Frost School of Music for believing in me, investing in me and pushing me to be my best.”

The award was presented by Associate Dean of Graduate Studies Shannon K. de l’Etoile when the Frost Music Live Signature Series concert, Broadway @Frost concluded. Henry performed in the show with Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera star and the current voice of Good Morning America star Marcus Lovett and his daughter Cathryn Lovett, who is also a Frost alumnus. Joining them on stage were Dan Strange of the Frost Faculty and the Frost Musical Theater Workshop and Opera Theater Students.

After the standing ovation, and in speaking to the students — saying how fortunate they were to be at Frost — Henry offered just three words of advice: “Practice, practice, practice!”
