News   Nash Ensemble Will Be Joined by Kim Criswell and Louise Dearman for Celebration of Richard Rodgers at London's Wigmore Hall
 
The Nash Ensemble, the chamber ensemble in residence at London's Wigmore Hall, will present a one-off concert March 8 devoted to songs written by Richard Rodgers in the third act of his career, following the deaths of his previous long-term writing partners Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II.

It will include songs from his collaborations with Martin Charnin, Sheldon Harnick and Stephen Sondheim, including works from Do I Hear a Waltz? that he wrote with the latter and which has never been seen in the West End, though it is coincidentally being revived on the London fringe at the Park Theatre, March 5-30, as previously reported here. Also represented will be Two by Two (lyrics by Charnin), Rex (Harnick) and I Remember Mama (Charnin and Raymond Jessel), as well as songs for which he wrote both music and lyrics (the Broadway score to No Strings; the TV musical score for "Androcles and the Lion" and two additional songs to the film version of "The Sound of Music").

The Nash Ensemble will be joined by soloists Kim Criswell, Louise Dearman and William Burden and conducted by David Childs.
