Sondheim's Sunday

This work is a marriage of two elements that are ethereal, transformational and transcendent: Music and Light. Music, for me, is a spiritual and emotional experience that transports us beyond language and physical barriers. Light, to me, represents energy, life and love. Blending light and music is a magical process. And ultimately, this work is a tribute to Stephen Sondheim who changed the world with his music and artistry. In his beautiful anthem titled "Sunday" from 'Sunday in the Park with George' the French horn is used to create an inspirational, uplifting and soaring melodious sound that celebrates Sondheim's love of art and humanity.
