“The Hammerstein and Sondheim American Songbook Tapestry Woven in Bucks County” production, a working title, will be presented at the Yardley Community Center, accommodating 240 audience members. A sample of noted Oscar Hammerstein II works to be performed are “The Sound of Music,” “Oklahoma!,” “South Pacific,” “ The King and I,” and “Show Boat.” Additionally, unforgettable works from Stephen Sondheim which are sure to delight our audiences include “West Side Story,” “Gypsy,” “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” and “Sweeney Todd.”
Narration by one-of-a-kind musical lecturer/actor/musician, Fred Miller, will include historical and anecdotal information focused on the Hammerstein-Sondheim link. Fred will offer accounts of detailed Bucks County connections for certain songs and background on their impetus, including an interesting discussion of the Hammerstein and Sondheim mentoring/student, father/ son-like relationship
The Hammerstein and Sondheim ‘Tapestry’ production will include two accomplished vocalists,
Paul Jost and Marianne Solivan, with exceptional abilities to transmit the beauty and conviction of important Hammerstein and Sondheim works with their voice instruments, whether in single or duet songs. The other musicians won’t be ‘backing’ the vocalists, but will be part of one, unified dedication to relaying all the feeling and complexities of the works. The Hammerstein and Sondheim Tapestry is a one-of-a-kind, special story that involved not one, but two, epic lyricist/composers, and will take place in our own Bucks County
