As a result of their annual event the Stephen Sondheim Society Student Performer of the Year (SSSSPOTY) being cancelled, due to Covid19, the SSS will be launching its first online Sondheim Sessions this Sunday 7 June at 7pm BST. Another Vodka Stinger will feature Oscar Conlon-Morrey, a previous SSSSPOTY prizewinner in 2017, who will be performing a cabaret-style concert showcasing Sondheim numbers arranged by Jason Carr, acclaimed Sondheim orchestrator (Sunday in the Park with George and West Side Story) and accompanist, having worked closely with Maria Friedman. Oscar will also include a song from one of our successful young composers, Eamonn O’Dwyer, in line with Sondheim’s commitment to supporting new writing.
Sondheim Sessions is free to all via Crowdcast, https://www.crowdcast.io/e/anothervodkastinger/register
but there will be a donation link attached https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ssondheimsessions
to raise funds for SSSSPOTY, so that new Sondheim Masterclasses and Workshops can be developed to support young performers.
An additional feature for Society members only, will be the chance to sip a Vodka Stinger straight after the concert, with Oscar in an exclusive Q&A Zoom session.
