An American Hero: A World War II Musical

One of the most gratifying projects I've been a part of this summer was working in the pit of An American Hero:  A World War II Musical as a part of the New York Musical Festival, or NYMF Kenneth L. Stilson did a great job writing a book that makes you feel like you're hanging out in a time from long ago, and Cody Cole wrote music that is funny, dramatic, and haunting at times.  He pulls from many sources of inspiration, and melds them together pretty seamlessly.

The Musicians of Now

We are the bulk of the people working in the industry, and I think we deserved to be celebrated in our own time, not after we embark on a path that redefines who we are.  We are directly in touch with our audiences and we have the power to shape the way people see classical music in a hands-on way, on a daily basis.  We're working, we're living, and sometimes we're freaking out: we're the Musicians of Now.  And we're awesome.
