Love, I Hear: The Lyrics of Stephen Sondheim
Performed by Gavan Pamer
Saturday, April 2 at 7:30pm
“Love, I Hear: The Lyrics of Stephen Sondheim” explores a personal journey of the highs and lows of love and relationships, as told through the brilliant lyrics of Stephen Sondheim, sung by Gavan Pamer and accompanied by Kathleen Billie (piano) and Freya Samuels (cello).
Sondheim’s influence on the American musical theater landscape is indisputable, encompassing more than a half-century of contributions, with nearly every accolade imaginable, including a Pulitzer Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. His best known works as lyricist and composer include, among others: “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”, “Company”, “Follies”, “A Little Night Music”, “Sweeney Todd”, “Sunday in the Park with George” and “Into the Woods”. His lyrical credits additionally include “West Side Story” and “Gypsy”.
In the company of exceptional musicians, Gavan Pamer (music director for last year’s Music Hall performance of The Civil War, and an accomplished performer in his own right) will perform well-known favorites, including: “Something’s Coming” from West Side Story, and “Not While I’m Around” from Sweeney Todd–as well as some of Sondheim’s lesser-known standouts, such as “Live Alone and Like It” from the movie “Dick Tracy”.
This performance begins at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door on the day of the event, and $15 for students.
Shuttle service provided from Main Street municipal parking lot (between Mary and Pine Streets) in Carnegie, PA.
Please join us for a light dessert reception in our 2nd Floor Lincoln Gallery after the performance.
This concert is made possible through the generosity the A.W. Mellon and Charitable Trust of The Pittsburgh Foundation.
