Students from the University's London College of Music have delivered a spectacular cabaret-style performance of songs by celebrated composer Stephen Sondheim.
The evening called 'Cheese, Wine and Sondheim' took place on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 April 2012 in a transformed cabaret club style Lawrence Hall which is part of the Students' Union at the University's St Mary's Road, Ealing site.
It was a musical feast with songs from Sweeney Todd, Follies, Company and A Little Night Music, which showcased the incredible talent of students from the London College of Music.
The evening was a collaborative effort by the London College of Music with the third year Orchestration class arranging the music, Musical Theatre students performing the songs and BMus Performance students providing the orchestra. Recent London College of Music graduate, George Carter did an incredible job of pulling all of the musical aspects of the show together as the Music Director, in his first event of this kind.
As part of the University's commitment to Fairtrade, the wine that was served at the event was Fairtrade.
Commenting on the 'Cheese, Wine and Sondheim' evening, Sara Raybould, Acting Head of the University's London College of Music, said: 'I enjoyed it so much on the first evening that I went again on the second. Well done to staff and students for this wonderful collaboration.'
