Bayou City Concert Musicals will present the 2014 Kim Hupp Award to Sylvia Froman as part of its fundraising event, "A Little Sondheim Music." The award was established in 2004 to commemorate the life of Kim Hupp, BCCM's first musical director, who died in 2002. The Hupp Award is presented annually to individuals who have made significant contributions to musical theater in Houston.

Sylvia Froman has graced Houston stages since the 1950s, when she first became a star at Theatre Inc. and played lead roles in The Music Man, Showboat and Milk and Honey. Her talents have taken her from opera to musical comedy to serious drama. From Mama Rose in Gypsy to the Mother Superior in Nunsense to Aunt Kate in James Joyce's The Dead, Froman has mastered every role with grace and panache. She has appeared in five BCCM concert musicals, as Ida in 70 Girls 70, as Madame Armfeldt in A Little Night Music as Solange in Follies, as Lady Beekman in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and in a scene-stealing cameo as the landlady in One Touch of Venus.

The Kim Hupp Award will be presented as part of "A Little Sondheim Music," a concert benefiting Bayou City Concert Musicals. The musical evening will feature performances of Stephen Sondheim songs by Zachary Bryant, Susan Draper, Jennifer Gilbert, Dylan Godwin, Joe Kirkendall, Beth Lazarou, David Matranga and Susan Shofner.

Tickets are $50 (performance only) and $100 (includes a post-performance reception honoring Sylvia Froman and the show's performers). Tickets are available for advance sale only. No tickets will be sold at the door.
