Bernadette Peters at the Hollywood Bowl - Concert

Here is a You-Tube treat.  I assume this is her 1996 Hollywood Bowl Concert.  Bernabette Peters is a joy.  He makes beautiful music.  She is the person others try to copy when they sing.  She has been performing since age five.
She performs several Stephen Sondheim numbers. 
"Broadway Baby" from Follies.  Peters dances with this song.
"No One Is Alone" from Into the Woods.  This song is one of the touching songs form the second act.  Somtimes things are not what they seem.
"Sooner or Later" from Dick Tracy.
"Not a Day Goes By" form Merrily We Roll Along is a trademark song of Peters.  It repeats the same lyric many times, but the way Peters performs it is interesting and exciting and dis settling all at the same time.  

She also sings "Unexpected Song" Form Song and Dance.   Peters won a Tony for this musical.  This song is such a treat. 

"Glow Worm" was an unexpected and fun song.  She announces it as a sad song.  The orchestra (L. A. Philharmonic Orchestra) even sings this number. 

"Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive," one of my favorite songs, introduced a Harold Arlen section.  This section also included "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Come on Get Happy." "Over the Rainbow" and "Stormy Weather."

Peters has her own style and tone; but it is all good.
