"It's so fitting that Jonathan Tunick be honored with the Sondheim Award," artistic director Eric Schaeffer said in a statement. "His collaboration on Sondheim's musicals over the years is legendary and groundbreaking. He is a passionate artist who loves every aspect of the musical theatre, and it will be an honor to celebrate his artistry this spring."
"What makes Jonathan Tunick unique as a theatre orchestrator is that he understands the theatre as well as he does the orchestra," Sondheim added. "Orchestrators don't get the recognition they deserve. The Signature Theatre Sondheim Award will, I hope, serve as a means of amending this oversight."
