    In case you need some "joyous noise" in your life right now, Broadway's stay-in-place production of "Take Me to the World: A Sondheim 90th Birthday Celebration" is available via YouTube (originally issued Apr. 26). A wonderful, 2+ hour celebration of the Broadway composer/lyricist and his music and words, by a plethora of talented performers.

    Catch the second number (at 3:28), the Overture from "Merrily We Roll Along," with a Zoom-cast of orchestra musicians stitched together to perform the piece--a joy to behold.
