Ben Hur show an epic success

I have been working with composer Stewart Copeland for the last year on a cinematic show called Ben Hur In Concert. The show is a 70 piece orchestra playing with Stewart as percussion soloist, all in sync to the 1925 silent version of Ben Hur which is being projected behind them. We just had a sold out premiere at the Virginia Arts Festival and it was brilliant! The reviews are saying “pure genius”, “visual and musical triumph”, and “unexpected and daring”. I was the score editor for Stewart and music engraver for Schirmer, our publisher. It was a real pleasure to work on this 90 minute epic. The next show will be with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on October 14.
