Amherst Glee Arts Response, Inc. (AGAR) presents "A Perfect Relationship" - a virtual YouTube concert that will be online until May 24, 2021.
Scott Williamson, tenor; Asherah Capellaro, soprano; C. W. Markham, piano
Perfect Relationship highlights the work of Kander and Ebb, Stephen Sondheim and Kurt Weill. Also featured are scenes by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jule Styne and Eric Idle, writer of the Monty Python musical, Spamalot.
The program shares its title with Jule Styne’s song, “A Perfect Relationship,” from Bells Are Ringing. “Ironic wit, situational comedy and double entendre have always been features of the American Musical,” says Williamson. “The balance of humor and lyricism, of entertainment and drama help make the musical comedy the beloved form of live art it is. Our program aims to reflect different colors of this prism, from classic ballads like Weill’s “September Song” to contemporary classics such as Sondheim’s “Ladies who Lunch,” Williamson added.
In addition to those mentioned above, songs from Weill’s Lady in the Dark, Kander & Ebb’s Cabaret, Sondheim’s Into the Woods and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Flower Drum Song round out the program.
TICKETS: $15 adults; $5 students
With ticket purchase, you will receive a private link to the concert on AGAR’s YouTube Channel and may view it unlimited times until 10 pm May 24, 2021.
