SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … This Friday and Saturday, March 25 and 26, at 7:30 p.m., Le Moyne College’s music program will present “Side by Side by Sondheim,” a musical revue featuring many of Stephen Sondheim’s better-known songs as well as some lesser-known gems. The event takes place in the W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts.
The Le Moyne College Singers comprise the 32-person cast, which has been preparing under the leadership of music director Jocelyn Rauch and theatre arts faculty member Matt Chiorini, who has been assisting with musical staging.
“This has been a truly collaborative, cross-disciplinary project,” says Travis Newton, Le Moyne’s interim director of music. “The music program is thrilled to be partnering with the theatre arts program on this show, giving our students the opportunity to interpret the songs of a true musical theater legend.”
Sondheim’s 80th birthday has been celebrated in concerts and productions across the globe, including events at Royal Albert Hall in London and Carnegie Hall in New York City.
