He moved to Fort Wayne recently to work for Sweetwater, and in the past year has performed keyboards for Civic Theatre's productions of Elf: The Musical and Mama Mia. He is also the Music Director of the Unitarian Congregational Church of Fort Wayne. He is currently writing a new original musical-comedy with Nancy Carlson-Dodd.
Gary has played piano since he was 5, sang and toured with a boy choir from ages 10-13, traveled through eight European countries in a band playing french horn and tenor sax at age 15, and in his 20's toured as a professional musician throughout the eastern US in various types of bands including rock, R&B, pop, Latina, country and show bands. After moving to L.A. in his early 30's, he studied musical composition, orchestration and film scoring at UCLA. While living in Los Angeles, he scored some independent and AFI films, and studied orchestrations under some of the leading composers and orchestrators in the film industry. He also conducted many studio recording sessions in the LA area. The Pacific Composers Guild orchestra performed one of his original works at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Museum of Art Theatre. That performance was broadcast live on the LA classical radio station, KUSC.
