Tony-Winning Orchestrator Jonathan Tunick Will Be Up Close & Personal at Birdland
By Michael Gioia
Musical director, orchestrator and composer Jonathan Tunick will take part in Up Close & Personal, an in-depth conversation with the Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award winner, Sept. 13 at Birdland.
Presented by the American Society of Music Arrangers & Composers (ASMAC) and the American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP), the event will be hosted by ASMAC president Larry Blank.
The evening, scheduled to begin at 5 PM with cocktails and dinner, promises to be "an insightful look into the career of Jonathan Tunick, one of only 12 people to have won all four major American show business awards: Tony Award, Academy Award, Emmy Award and Grammy Award. Much of his work has arisen from his involvement in theatre, and since 1970, he has worked on most of the musicals of Stephen Sondheim, beginning with Company through the 2010-11 revival of Follies."
Tunick's other Broadway credits include Promises, Promises; Dames at Sea; A Little Night Music; A Chorus Line; Sweeney Todd; Nine; Into the Woods; Nick & Nora; Phantom; The Color Purple; Marie Christine; The Wind in the Willows; Road Show; and Paradise Found, among others.
