I Know Things Now by Stephen Sondheim


For my piece, I Know Things Now by Stephen Sondheim, I was inspired by my love for musicals and being able to perform in the character of Little Red Riding Hood. I love this song because of the complicated melodic accompaniment. It was a challenge to learn, but once I got it, it was a joy to perform.

The piece has a deeper meaning than just learning lessons from the wolf, instead it is about the challenges of life and what comes with it, which is something that resonates with me. Year 12 Music was a great class to be a part of and I will miss it dearly!
