March 28, 2009, 8 pm - John Sawoski played piano as three of Broadway's best—Debbie Gravitte, Anne Runolfsson, and Jan Horvath—lit up the stage. They dazzled the audience with hit after show-stopping hit from Sweet Charity, Gypsy, Wicked, A Chorus Line, Evita, Jekyll and Hyde, My Fair Lady and many more. Inevitably and enter-tainingly, LBSO favorite Michael Krajewski added plenty of fun and humor to this evening of Broadway gems.

Note from John Sawoski: This was one of the best concerts I've ever played - with the best orchestra, a huge audience in Long Beach Arena, and live big-screen video of the concert. I was on camera most of the show, as the 9-foot Steinway was front and center. It was a piano-heavy show, including the Overture to West Side Story complete with the Mambo... The singers were all powerhouses. They sang Glitter and Be Gay, lots of great Jule Styne, Andrew Lloyd Webber, as well as songs from "Wicked" and "Mamma Mia." It all ended with an encore of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" which featured big piano solos. Michael Krajewski also had a great rapport with the audience as well as the singers (and the orchestra).
