On Monday, March 15, 2010, the New York Philharmonic celebrated Stephen Sondheim with its star-studded Spring Gala. The show was taped for future airing on PBS. Stay tuned for full photo coverage of the entire concert later this week on BroadwayWorld.com!

This celebration of the 80th birthday of the great Broadway and film composer/lyricist included Stephen Sondheim's most enduring orchestral music and songs, in addition to rarely-heard material. Paul Gemignani, Mr. Sondheim's longtime collaborator, conducted the New York Philharmonic; Lonny Price is the director; and Mr. Price and Matt Cowart are the producers.

The evening included songs and orchestral pieces from Sondheim musical theater favorites such as Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and Anyone Can Whistle, along with a suite from music he wrote for the film Reds, which has never before been performed live.
