With 8 Tony Awards®, 8 Grammy's®, a Pulitzer Prize® and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Stephen Sondheim, an American composer and lyricist, is known for a half-century of contributions to musical theater.

Attendees will enjoy an impressive list of Sondheim's greatest theatrical achievements: Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, Anyone Can Whistle, Sunday in the Park With George and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
Anthony DeMare, one of the world's foremost champions of contemporary music, will also join PSGMC. His recent CD "Liaisons," brings the work of Sondheim into the concert hall. This gifted pianist will bring to life the enchantment of Sondheim paired with delightful vocal ensembles and our full chorus.
Additionally, three phenomenally talented sopranos Kara Masek, Jaci Davis and Christina Marie Harrell will perform solos throughout the production.
"Stephen Sondheim is America's most amazing Broadway composer. His music is sophisticated, full of interesting rhythms, beautiful melodies and funny, interesting, challenging lyrics. This concert gives our audience the opportunity to hear Sondheim's music in choral arrangements, vocal solos and in piano arrangements that have been praised by Mr. Sondheim," said Douglas Wilson, Artistic Director.
The chorus' new performance home is The Richards Center for the Arts at Palm Springs High School an 869-seat venue, which was taken into a 2-year upgrade project with state-of-the-art sound and lighting, new seating, enlarged orchestra pit, acoustical ceiling tile installation and extensive backstage facilities.
