Description:
The Chorale presents an evening of music by one of the masters of American musical theater. Stephen Sondheim began his career as a protégé of Oscar Hammerstein II and as a lyricist for Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story, Candide), but soon struck out on his own with a breathtaking series of Broadway shows: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Follies, Company, A Little Night Music, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, and Sunday in the Park with George. Join us for an enchanting evening of music from this true American genius, with featured selections from his musicals by the Chorale and in solos by members of the Chorale. But you better get your tickets early, because “Another Hundred People Just Got Off of the Train”! And as you head into the performance, keep a look out for beans…“They May Be Magic.”
