Sondheim teaches “Not Getting Married”

January 4, 2008

Daniel found this great video that features Stephen Sondheim teaching some well meaning young singers from Guildhall School one of our favorite songs, “(Not) getting married” from COMPANY. This is a fun clip to see Sondheim’s coaching on the song.

This performance may leave you wanting to hear a better performance. Here’s one by Carol Burnett. Her articulation is probably the best I’ve heard, even though her humor is a bit over the top, but hey, it’s Carol.

Here is a parallel coaching by Sondheim but it’s the Original Cast recording.

Behind the scenes look at the 1970 recording of “Getting Married Today”, sung by Beth Howland, Steve Elmore and Teri Ralston.

Available on the highly recommended DVD “Company: Original Cast Album”.
