Described by Frank Rich of The New York Times as "now the greatest and perhaps best-known artist in the American musical theater," Stephen Sondheim is an American composer and lyricist known for his immense contributions to musical theatre for over 50 years. He is the winner of an Academy Award, eight Tony Awards (more than any other composer) including the Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre, eight Grammy Awards, a Pulitzer Prize and the Laurence Olivier Award.

The Jamesport Meeting House, built by Riverhead’s pioneers in 1731, is the oldest standing public building on the East End of Long Island.  Purchased for the community by the Jamesport Meeting House Preservation Trust in 2008, this beautiful building boasts excellent acoustics and a wonderful performance space.  The Meeting House is located at 1590 Main Road, on the corner of Manor Lane in Jamesport.
