The Score

You will no doubt notice that there is no singing on any of these recordings.  At the present time, I am trying to gather up competent singers who will sing these show tunes and do them justice.  I have found in the part of the world where I live that good singers will not work for free.  Nor should they have to!  For I myself know, as a lifelong singing teacher and professional musical theater accompanist, that the human voice is one of the difficult instruments to master, and my score isn’t child’s play, even for the quickest of studies.  If you are a person who is able to contribute, I am currently looking for money to pay the singers who will make these songs shine.  They are listed below in show order, sometimes truncated for the sake of brevity.  Clicking on the song title will reveal a player.  Crank the volume, hit “play,” and enjoy.

  1. Andy – It was good meeting you at Starbucks in Berkeley yesterday. I found some time to sit down and listen to your compositions. I love your melodies, harmonies and counterpoint, and the way that you develop your themes. In particular,”Hunted”, “Elegy” and “Violation of the Muse.” If you don’t know about Musical Cafe (, check them out and make contact with them. Several times a year they showcase musical theatre works in progress. It would be a good place to find people to help you develop the shows you’re writing, get some of the songs and scenes up in front of an audience to see how people respond and see where there might be work still to do. I wish you the best with your dream! Scott


    • Hello Scott – I enjoyed meeting you as well. Thank you for giving my music a good listen. “Elegy” is one of my personal favorites as well. I have heard about Musical Cafe, and I agree upon perusing their web site that it would be an excellent place to showcase a work-in-progress such as *Eden in Babylon.* I recall being out of town the last time I saw their posting on Bay Area Theatre Bums, so I will have to make sure I tune into them more carefully next time they’re available in this regard. It seems this might also be pivotal in my emergence from the “creative isolation” that we discussed. So happy you took the time to stop by — good luck in your theatrical endeavors (you & yours!) hereafter. ~ A.P.
