Turlough Convery Interview

From the BBC Website

A relative newcomer to the musical theatre scene also joined the line-up, singing in - what I later learnt was his first show with a full-scale orchestra just months after graduation: Turlough Convery won the Stephen Sondheim Society award this year and was invited to perform in the concert by the show's producer, Julia McKenzie.

Turlough Convery talks about his appearance at the 'Sondheim:Inside Out' concert.

Turlough's first song? A hilarious and rather touching rendition of I'm Calm from A Funny Thing Happened On the Way To the Forum, with him offsetting his character's obvious nerves by frantically blowing into a paper bag in between phrases. A must-listen in the run-up to Christmas.

During the rehearsals we caught up with show director Jonathan Butterell, conductor Keith Lockhart and two of the singing stars Turlough Convery and Kim Criswell and asked them what they love about Sondheim and what to listen out for at the concert.
