When Stephen Sondheim died at 91 in 2021, he was one of the 20th-century’s most celebrated and influential lyricist-composers. His work included beloved Broadway shows like West Side Story, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Sunday in the Park with George, and Into the Woods.

A consummate storyteller, Sondheim’s lyrics are “scrupulously literate and resonant with complex ideas or emotional ambivalence” (New York Times), providing a window into the psyche of both character and lyricist.

Zachary Rushing, a Seattle-born jazz singer and songwriter who is now Programs Manager at Jazz Winnipeg, names Sondheim as one of his most important musical influences. Blessed with an ethereal voice and a natural warmth and expressiveness on stage, he is the perfect person to bring these songs to life for a Winnipeg audience.

Izzy Asper Jazz Performances is pleased to partner with Jazz Winnipeg for this fabulous evening of song. The Club on the lower level of the Fort Garry Hotel feels a lot like a New York jazz club, one of Izzy Asper’s favourite places to be.
