A reference to Gilbert sans Sullivan?

We did her meledy of Pretty Women/Ladies Who Lunch for a closer in high school one year.  It was pretty ok.  The swells and phrases of Pretty Women were great to play.  

 

Ahh Sondheim.

Streisand's repertoire is pretty similar to Burt Bacharach's music, in my opinion, and Blue Devils did a whole Bacharach show in 2011.

😉

I was just punning around, my reference was to a Barbera Streisand cover song and comedy by that name. I grew up laughing at that movie, but an even funnier one by far starring Babs, was "What's up Doc".

Way back in the mid 90's, our high school marching band tried that.  It went about as well as you would imagine.

 

 

I'm not saying a corps couldn't pull one off today, but there's a lot of better music out there, IMHO.
