The phrase "perpetual anticipation" is bandied about a good deal in the lyrics of the musical "A Little Night Music." Now it is the name of a quintet of local singers which started out in a Pittsford Musicals production of that Stephen Sondheim work. Sopranos Myriah Marsh and Kristin Mellema, mezzo-soprano Allyn Van Dusen, and tenor Thomas Racculia enjoyed their anxiously amorous musical experience so much they decided to stick together as an ensemble, adding baritone Michael Roddy. Perpetual Anticipation, with pianist Julie Covach, will perform at The College at Brockport this Friday night. The program includes classical and Broadway selections by everybody from Francesco Cavalli to Jason Robert Brown as well as a sequence of songs by contemporary female musical theater songwriters. There's also, of course, a little Sondheim.
Perpetual Anticipation will perform Friday, September 9, at Brockport's Tower Fine Arts Center Mainstage, 180 Holley Street. 7:30 p.m. $17 general; $12 seniors, alumni, faculty, staff; $9 students. 395-2787; fineartstix.brockport.edu.
