Simon, Sondheim to share stage Dec. 3
NEW YORK – It is a triple billing for the ages, one night only: Paul Simon, Stephen Sondheim and Michael Chabon. The subject will be words and music. Chabon, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, will host a discussion among himself and the two celebrated composers. Announced Monday by the MacDowell Colony for artists, the event will be held Dec. 3 at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City.
Chabon is chairman of MacDowell, based in New Hampshire and one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious artist colonies. Last summer, Sondheim was awarded the 54th annual Edward MacDowell Medal for lifetime achievement.
