As one of the recurring artists of the multi-award winning concert series Sondheim Unplugged, Marquee Five was invited to record for Volumes I, II and III of “Sondheim Unplugged {the nyc sessions}.” With the goal of immortalizing the piano and vocal only arrangements of Sondheim’s work previously only heard on stage, this album set can now be found on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and on streaming radio.

Hear Marquee Five’s unique arrangements of “Sunday” from Sunday in the Park with George, “Something’s Coming'” from West Side Story, “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd” from Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, “Another Hundred People” from Company, as well as renditions from mezzo Julie Reyburn on “Not While I’m Around” (Sweeney Todd), “Everybody Loves Louis” (Sunday in the Park with George), “Take Me to the World” (Evening Primrose), “Stay With Me” (Into the Woods), as part of a trio in “Pretty Lady” (Pacific Overtures), plus a duet between alto Sierra Rein and Sarah Rice (original Johanna from Sweeney Todd) on “One More Kiss” (Follies).
