Composition Premiere at the Kimmel Center!

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

I’m at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia tonight, where along with about 40 incredibly talented kids and adults I’ll be performing (to a full house!) a super fun classic Broadway-style number that I wrote as the opening number to my alma mater’s  70th anniversary gala. As I walk through the labyrinthian halls of this incredible venue, I can hear people singing my music as I turn every corner, laughing at the lyrics, and perfecting layers of harmony.

As a composer/lyricist, this is the moment you cherish beyond any other: when that little ditty you heard in your head one day at 3AM is brought to life and becomes everything you imagined it could be and more. It is a truly amazing feeling, and thank you to everyone who made it possible. And for those of you who will be here tonight – strap in for a killer opening number!
