I finally was able to get a clip together of my Nov. 30 solo concert, BROADWAY, MY WAY, in Toronto. It was at the Metropolitan Community Church and it was pretty thrilling night for me. I will try to get a couple more just to give a taste and eventually some of my Christmas cabaret SHUT UP, IT’S CHRISTMAS!
But for now, here is People from Funny Girl. It’s an arrangement that I created with Wayne Gwillim that I love. What he did is exquisite, in my opinion . . . and it’s my blog so my opinion is what counts. 😛 Diane Leah, my wonderful musical director, played it so beautifully. It was a very happy moment for me. I hope you guys enjoy.
I apologize for being so long away everyone. Since we’ve talked I’ve finished Over the Rainbow,
done my concert at MCC, BROADWAY, MY WAY
and my cabaret, SHUT UP, IT’S CHRISTMAS! For the first act of which, I was me. These two shows are from act two where I play Mrs. Claus – old and young.
Now, we come to the next exciting project. I’m coming/going home to Winnipeg to do a concert.
ME AND MY TOWN: THOM ALLISON IN CONCERT
From Winnipeg to Broadway and Back
It’s part of the Sondheimfest that the city is participating. So all of the songs in my hour and a half concert are from the repertoire of the great theatre composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim. Always a joy, honour and a gift to perform his music. My pianist is a gifted young musician, musical director named Scott Christian. Remember that name. You’ll be hearing it a lot. I’m so excited.
