The Rodgers & Hammerstein catalogue, which includes the classic musicals The Sound of Music, Oklahoma!, and South Pacific, has been purchased by the Imagen Music Group, an investment arm of a Dutch pension fund. The sale includes the acquisition of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization, which will continue to set high standards for the use of the works of the legendary composers, which means that we probably won't be hearing "My Favorite Things" in Arby's ads anytime soon.
