The evening called 'Cheese, Wine and Sondheim' will take place on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 April 2012 in Lawrence Hall at the University's St Mary's Road, Ealing site at 7pm.
It promises to be a musical feast with songs by the Academy Award winning composer and guests can look forward to songs from iconic films Sweeney Todd, Follies, Company and A Little Night Music being showcased by the talent of students from the London College of Music.
Sondheim is an American composer and lyricist for stage and film with a successful and inspirational career that has included eight Tony Awards, multiple Grammy Awards, a Pulitzer Prize and the Laurence Olivier Award.

'It is wonderful to see that students from across the London College of Music are collaborating as part of the curriculum in this way, it promises to be a wonderful evening. Also thank you to colleagues in Hospitality and the Students' Union for their assistance in putting this evening together.'
