Songs on the program range from popular jazz standards such as the Rodgers and Hart classic “My Funny Valentine,” Jerome Kern’s “All the Things You Are” and Duke Ellington’s “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” to musical theatre favorites including the title song from Cole Porter’s Anything Goes, Kurt Weill’s “Mack the Knife” from Threepenny Opera, and Leonard Bernstein’s and Stephen Sondheim’s “Maria” from West Side Story, to virtuoso scenes such as “Soliloquy”, from Carousel, one of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein collaborations.
Scott Williamson, in addition to singing tenor roles in opera and musical theatre, is the Artistic Director of Opera Roanoke. That company recently produced both Sweeney Todd and South Pacific. He says that he has worked with pianist and musicologist Timothy Gaylard for over 20 years. Their collaborations began when Scott Williamson started teaching as an adjunct at Washington & Lee University. In Williamson’s words, “Tim Gaylard is that rare blend of scholar and performer. He’s a distinguished professor and a great musician!”
A supper and a “meet the musicians” reception will follow the concert, hosted by Amherst Presbyterian Church’s (APC) Mission Committee, for a donation to benefit APC Pre-School.
