Tuesday my wife and I spent an enjoyable evening, along with several thousand other participants at a concert that featured the music of Stephen Schwartz. As most of you know he is the writer and lyricist for a number of Broadway plays and has written songs for Disney animated features on the silver screen. The concert which featured Stephen Schwartz on Piano, And the San Francisco66 Gay Men's Chorus was excellent. One of our neighbors arranged most of the music for the concert And even though the chorus is comprised of volunteers, there are many many excellent voices. The evening was as if we had attended a series of Broadway plays all featuring Stephen Schwartz music. He is certainly a genius when it comes to words and music that convey images and sounds extremely well
I took one picture just as the concert ended of the venue and the chorus filing out of the auditorium.
every song, every piece of music was spectacular. At one point Stephen Schwartz played the piano alone on the huge stage and sang three of his most endearing pieces of work – – when you believe from the Prince of Egypt movie, the spark of creation from children of Eden, and Karemos, from his recently completed opera.
I remember this version of Defying Gravity on Glee (lyrics and music by Stephen Schwartz)!!!
