As a musician, I am constantly working in various types of styles - everything from Broadway, R&B, Gospel, and Pop, just to name a few. I’ve been fortunate to collaborate with some of the most talented and gracious artists. Below is a sampling of a few of those collaborations.
ZARA LARSSON AT APOLLO THEATER
As the pianist and band lead for 13 episodes of a Swedish reality show, featuring the brightest upcoming stars of Europe, I had the pleasure of working with Zara Larsson. Here she is performing at the Apollo for the final episode of the series, singing our arrangement of “Killing Me Softly.”
3 MO' DIVAS ON PBS
Conceived by Marion J. Caffey (creator of Three Mo’ Tenors), I served as music director, conductor, lead pianist, and “Diva of the Keys” for this TV special, in which the divas brought down the house with performances of an impressive 10 styles of music (all arranged and orchestrated by Joseph Joubert). This was an incredible experience I will never forget!
LITTLE DANCER AT KENNEDY CENTER
What a great joy to get to play four instruments for Little Dancer (including the accordion!). In addition, I served as associate music director, conductor and pianist for this production at the Kennedy Center, directed by Susan Stroman and starring Tiler Peck, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet.
LEAP OF FAITH WITH RAUL ESPARZA
As the associate music director and lead pianist for a production of Leap of Faith at The Ahmanson theater in L.A., I worked with Brooke Shields and Raul Esparza. The play, a musical adaptation of the 1992 Steve Martin film, featured music by legendary composer Alan Menken.
CHINA'S ART AND MUSIC FESTIVAL
Touring in China with the Boys & Girls Choir of Harlem as their accompanist was a special treat for me. Together, we brought gospel music to five majors cities in China—cities which had never heard gospel music before. It was incredibly inspiring to watch audiences on the other side of the world experience this music for the first time.
