The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus (FTLGMC) will present “Our Time With Sondheim,” an inspiring evening of music from Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim, with special guest performances by Broadway and opera superstars Lisa Vroman and Martha Bartz. The Chorus with its very special guest stars will perform two shows that will pay tribute to the consummate American composer and lyricist known for more than a half-century for his contributions to musical theater.
Special guest star Lisa Vroman is a Broadway Leading Lady who holds the record for most performances as Christine Daae' in Phantom of the Opera. Recognized by the great Cameron Mackintosh as "one of American Musical Theater's most beautiful voices,” Harold Prince says that "few ladies today possess the exquisite voice, clarity and range of Lisa Vroman.”
Joining Vroman and the Chorus is opera titan Martha Bartz, an in-demand Mezzo Soprano direct from a performance at Lincoln Center in New York. She was the winner of the 2010 Classical Singer convention in NYC (Musical Theater), the 2008 NYC NATS competition and a finalist in the 2009 International Lotte Lehmann Cybersing competition.
Funding for the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council.
