About the Concert

The Dayton Philharmonic, in collaboration with Joe Deer and the next generation of Broadway stars from the acclaimed Musical Theatre program at Wright State University, salutes Stephen Sondheim, one of the most influential musical theatre creators of our time. Known for musicals that faced the contemporary world head-on, with lyrics filled with wit and complexity, Sondheim was the creative genius behind such favorites as “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” “Into the Woods,” and “Sweeney Todd.” Join us as we pay homage to one of Broadway’s greats.
