BROADWAY | RPO Pops: Sondheim and Bernstein 

Early on in his career, lyricist Stephen Sondheim collaborated with then-established composer Leonard Bernstein on one of the most beloved musicals in theater history, "West Side Story." This weekend the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, led by conductor Jeff Tyzik, will present songs from the aforementioned musical, as well as selections from Bernstein's "Candide" and choice pieces from several of Sondheim's own musicals (including "Company," "Sweeney Todd," and "Follies"). The RPO will be joined by vocalists Lisa Vroman (who has played Johanna in "Sweeney") and J. Mark McVey (Jean Valjean in the 25th Anniversary Tour of "Les Miserables") in a night that musical-theater lovers will surely not want to miss.

The RPO Pops presents Sondheim and Bernstein on Broadway Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27, 8 p.m., at Kodak Hall at the Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs St. Tickets range from $15 to $79. rpo.org.
