Behind every Broadway musical is an orchestrator who turns the composer's melodies into what you actually hear in the theater-from the sweeping strings in A Little Night Music, to the modern vibe of Hamilton. Legendary orchestrators Jonathan Tunick (A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Pacific Overtures), Harold Wheeler (The Wiz, Dreamgirls, The Full Monty), Larry Hochman (The Book of Mormon, Spamalot, The Addams Family), and Alex Lacamoire (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, In the Heights) all shed light on how they create the sound of Broadway in a 92Y School of Music conversation with Naomi Lewin. Lewin is host of the popular syndicated program Classics for Kids , and former host of weekday afternoon music on WQXR. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions via chat at the conclusion of the program.
