(Anthony Stonier)

The Dive at the Hexagon in Pietermaritzburg is a perfect, warm and intimate venue for The Sound Of His Music - Richard Rodgers. This delightful show features one of KZN’s top artists, Anthony Stonier, who takes a “down memory-lane” meander through the marvelous melodies of one of the most famous composers of all time - Richard Rodgers. Most people are familiar with the Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals - Oklahoma!, South Pacific, The King and I and of course, The Sound of Music.

Less well-known was an earlier collaboration with another lyricist, Lorenz Hart. Audiences will, however, recognise some of the following Jazz Standards - songs such as Where or When, This Can’t be Love and Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered to name a few they wrote together.

The playlist includes Oh, What a Beautiful Morning!, Some Enchanted Evening, Surrey with a Fringe on Top, Hello Young Lovers, Edelweiss and You'll Never Walk Alone amongst many other well-known and nostalgia inducing songs!

Anthony Stonier is one of KZN's most popular singer/actors and has won Best Male Vocalist at the Mercury Durban Theatre Awards three times. This show sold out at The Witness Hilton Arts Festival in September 2014.
