Music Director & Piano Conductor
Adding music to a straight play can do wonders for a production. At Music for Theatre Chicago, we love having the artistic freedom of creating a soundscape or score for films and straight plays. Concepts are developed in production meetings with Directors along with readings of the script or screen play. Recent projects include, 'YELLOWMAN,' for Fleetwood Jourdain Theatre and 'In the Read & Brown Water,' a mainstage show at Northwestern University. Tell us about your concept and we will create a score that embraces your vision while captivating your audiences.
