Putting It Together (1999 Revival)
In this Sondheim revue, two couples reflect on the complexities of modern relationships.
This version is based on the Original 1999 Broadway Production.
In this orchestration, the band is conducted from the Piano/Conductor book with the MD playing piano. There is no programming in this book. Being that it is Sondheim, there is a high degree of difficulty in this book and you will need a proficient musician to play the part while leading the band.
The Keyboard book has all the programming in this version. There are not a lot of patches in this book, around 25, but these sounds are iconic and instrumental to the Sondheim sound that come from his earlier shows. The instruments featured in the programming are mostly orchestral in nature such as horns, strings, celeste, brass, and harp, but there is plenty of piano, organ, and Fender Rhodes as well. Although not technically as difficult as the PC book, this chair will still require an excellent player.

Putting It Together is a musical revue showcasing the songs of Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Follies, A Funny Thing Happened…). Drawing its title from a song in Sunday in the Park with George, it celebrates Sondheim’s incomparable career in musical theatre.
Featuring nearly thirty Sondheim tunes, Putting It Together is performed by only five people who are thrown together at a party in a Manhattan penthouse. With a bit of imagination, the guests transform the apartment into the stage of an abandoned theatre, an estate in Sweden, an island outside of Paris, a street off the Roman Forum, the woods of a fairy tale and a mythical town in the Southwest.
