Lining up everything. Setting the stage. Providing everyone with what they need so that can do their job. That’s the work of the producer and director of any production. By the way a wedding is also a production with the bride and her family as “the Producers” and the wedding coordinator as “the Director”.
Contributing to something and being part of something bigger.
Art survives better with other art. In a motion picture for example many art forms come together to create the final product: Lighting, Cinematography, Acting, Music, Set Design, Sound, Editing… “Black and White in Paris” features the black and white photography of Christopher Broughton set to music and dance.
As the music director for Black and White in Paris I was introduced to a cast of very talented artists who through their performance during rehearsal inspired me to put in the time and effort necessary for a successful performance; not only conducting rehearsals but writing arrangements and establishing the books the musicians would be playing from.
I Love Paris
