Christy Altomare (star of Broadway’s Anastasia):

I wrote a melody to the sonnet shall I compare thee for a musical version of Pericles that I was adapting … I handed it to my dear friend Adam Paltrowitz to arrange for a choir…. last Thursday I Skyped in while his incredible class performed the finished arrangement … Adam is not only an incredible arranger / song writer – but he is also an incredible teacher who has encouraged and helped shape the lives of so many of his students for the better… thank you Adam and students for this gift … hearing my melody come to life in this way is such an honor!

I took the beauty and simplicity in Christy’s folk song and wrote an accessible arrangement for my high school 9th-10th grade treble choir. This is a perfect piece for a Spring or Summer Concert.

Check out the attached video of my choir singing the song for Christy, just before her official opening night of Anastasia on Broadway.
