MuseMatch 2 Concert at 54 Below Benefits Bryce Pinkham's ZARA AINA Charity Tonight
Muse Match, an evening that seeks to answer the question, "What happens when 15 composers go on a blind date with 15 singers?," will be presented tonight, June 12th, 2014, at 11:30 PM at 54 Below. Produced by Bill Coyne, the evening will benefit ZARA AINA, a charity that brings theater and education to at-risk youth In Madagascar; founded by actors Bryce Pinkham and Lucas Caleb Rooney.
"I have paired 15 composers with 15 singers they have never worked with," Coyne told Broadwayworld.com. "Out of a musical theater blind-date where the pairs discuss their strengths and weaknesses, passions, fears, the composers write a song specifically for and inspired by the singer; with the intention of reaching new artistic territory."
Composers include Anna K. Jacobs, Tom Kenaston, Nathan Dame, Joel B. New, Xander Green, Kate Steinberger, Michael R. Jackson, David Alan Thornton, Caleb Damschroder, Andre Catrini, Joel Waggoner, Lauren Marcus, Brandon James Gwinn, Mike Pettry, Nick Luckenbaugh, and Tom Paitson Kelly.
Performers include Bryce Pinkham, Shina Ann Morris, Deborah Grausman, Tyrone B. Davis, Beth Kuhn, Lindsie Van Winkle, Liz Lark Brown, Max Chernin, Matthew Schatz, Whitney Maris Brown, Lisa Beth Birnbaum, Chris Ware, Ryan Speakman, Alyse Alan Louis, and Nick Gaswirth.
