Broadway composer and lyricist, Stephen Sondheim (1930-2021) followed in the steps of his mentor Oscar Hammerstein to rank among the greatest in the history of American music theater. Join the KSO for an evening of Sondheim hit songs from 11 shows including Company, Sweeney Todd, West Side Story, Into the Woods, Sunday in the Park with George, etc. (see playlist below) with musings by actress, friend and Sondheim protégé Pamela Myers. The program features both local singers and Broadway vets, including Pamela Myers, Jessica Hendy, Zack Steele, Morgan Smith, Susan Emerson, Josh and Brooke Steele. Don’t miss this incredible Sondheim tribute.
