William Waldrop's mother sat him down at the piano when he was three, and it sparked a lifelong love of music. He stumbled upon another bit of musical kismet when he met Vegas songwriter, Robert Williamson. The two formed a collaboration, and brought in local Phantom of the Opera singers and musicians. Now they're about to present their first concert: Listen to Our Song: The Music of Waldrop and Williamson. The local songwriters talk about the inspiration behind the project, and the song one of them wrote about his father's struggle with Alzheimer's.
The concert takes place Sunday, August 8 at the Clark County Flamingo Theater at 1:30 p.m. A silent auction and reception starts at noon. The concert is presented by SinCityQSocials and benefits Golden Rainbow . Seating is reserved for $20.
