VERY excited to work with Conductor JONATHON HEYWARD on my upcoming original production of FIREBIRD!

JONATHON is forging a career as one the most exciting conductors of his generation. Currently Assistant Conductor of the Hallé Orchestra, the young American was also selected to be part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2017/18 Dudamel Conducting Fellowship program.

Collaborating with some beautiful folks for our mad take on the eternal Firebird. In addition to the fabulous team at LA PHIL, Cathy Cooper is designing, Conner Marx is our Stravinsky and dancers are Kelsey Landers, Isaac Huerta, Baden Silva, Derek Schiesel and Ty Wells. Hope you can join us for some truly extraordinary music and story.

i'm thrilled to be contributing a piece for dancescape, a benefit for art + music education in los angeles. my piece is inspired by the music of missy mazzoli and the talent of my dancers - kenzie mcclure, kelsey landers, baden silva, and derek tabata. the show features work from a plethora of talented choreographers and dancers. don't miss a great chance to see live dance and give back to the community! special thanks to EDGE performing arts center for their generous donation of rehearsal space.
