Living With A Genius

My friend and colleague Omar Crook interviewed me for his Podcast “Living With A Genius.” We bloviated about music and life and marriage and family for about an hour. If you’re inclined to listen to that kind of thing, there are some fun tidbits in here. Special shout outs to Grant Gershon, John Morris Russell, Eric Whitacre, Marsha Norman, Jason Robert Brown and several friends from Los Angeles, College Light Opera Company, The Lilly Awards Foundation, my high school marching band and more. Enjoy!

Los Angeles MasterChorale Gala 2016

gala

I’m so excited to be working with Grant Gershon and the LA Master Chorale in preparation for this event on March 19th, 2016. If you’re in a position to spend the big bucks to support one of my favorite music-making organizations in the country, you can come hear the world premiere of a choral setting of “These Two,” as well as performances of “The Promise of Light” and a setting of “Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep.” Jason Robert Brown and I are co-chairing the gala, and yes, that means we’ll be in LA for a few days, celebrating choral singers and wearing very fancy clothes.

Listen to more of my choral music HERE.

Beyond Broadway: Composers Go Choral

Tomorrow night, Wednesday, April 8th, I’ll be participating in an evening of choral music written by my fellow composers in the Broadway community. Conductor Judith Clurman has long been a champion of crossing these genres and I am happy to be one of the composers she enlisted to write for Essential Voices, her fantastic ensemble of singers.

Read Shoshana Greenberg’s Huffington Post article about the concert HERE (including part of an interview with Yours Truly).

See a song list and get tickets at the Essential Voices website HERE.

7:30 pm at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music in NYC.  Hope to see you there!
