Sondheim Series & Celebration!

In honor of the late, great musical theater master, Stephen Sondheim, on March 11, 2022, six of our fabulous REGA students chose a Sondheim solo to work on in-depth, through coaching sessions and discussions with REGA Artistic Director, Virginia Hart Pike. They then performed their solos in front of a live audience at REGA'S home venue, TORCC-NY, and shared a little bit about their own personal journey with the song. The Sondheim celebration was followed by an open-mic, where more REGA guests got to feature their talents. Below are some photos and selected videos from the event.
