About this concert:
Prior to his passing this past November, Stephen Sondheim spent 65 years writing hit songs and musicals for the Broadway stage, revues and films. Sondheim grew up as a neighbor of the legendary Oscar Hammerstein, who became Stephen’s mentor. In the mid-1950s Sondheim got his break when he was brought to the team to pen the lyrics for West Side Story. He never looked back, and he began to write both the music and lyrics to his own 16 musicals, which are all produced and revived across the globe each year.
This KSO performance will feature tunes from 11 Sondheim musicals, and are thrilled to have Pamela Myers (one of Stephen’s protégés and original Company cast member) as the evening’s host to sing and share musings and first hand insights about the composer and his music. Our cast features Jessica Hendy, Morgan Smith, Susan Emerson, Brooke, Joshua and Zachary Steele singing humorous and touching songs from Company, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, Follies, Saturday in the Park with George and more.
