The Musical World of Stephen Sondheim
DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED
SAS PERFORMING ARTS COMPANY
For all the recognition accorded his brilliance, some conventional wisdom
still believes that Sondheim's work doesn't and will not attract a broad
popular audience because his lyrics are too intellectual, his music technically difficult, his characters too unpleasant, and his world view too cynical.
This workshop will face these challenges and discover how to approach a Stephen Sondheim song, scene, or character and find their nuances.
Coach and accompanist are provided.
This workshop includes:
Intensive study (with piano) of repertoire selected from the Stephen Sondheim musical canon
individual songs or scenes
each participant will bring a song that they want to work on and be pre-assigned additional selections to study and perform
Repertory is carefully selected based on voice type and experience level
