Peoples Natural Gas Presents - Love, I Hear: The Lyrics of Stephen Sondheim
"Peoples Natural Gas Presents - 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 exquisite lyrics of Stephen Sondheim, sung by acclaimed local performer 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".
This tribute revue will be performed by Gavan Pamer, a graduate of Point Park University, who has earned local, as well as national acclaim as a performer, director, choreographer, and music director. He also served as Artistic Director of Pittsburgh Musical Theater, and was Founding Artistic Director of Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center in Midland, PA.
In the company of exceptional musicians, Mr. Pamer will perform well-known favorites, such as: "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".
Advance tickets are $20, $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.
