‘Why we joined the union’
Volume 116, No. 4April, 2016
I joined Local 802 after orchestrating regional and children’s theatre shows for a while and wanting to open the door to more exciting jobs in NYC. I also like the idea of joining a community of musicians who have been making excellent music in NYC for so many years. My musical goal is to work with my husband and collaborator, Matt Castle, on and off Broadway (and even on film) as orchestrators. We’re also interested in arranging and copy work and all the things that put the music in musical theatre! One of my most favorite recent gigs was orchestrating, arranging and copying for “Found” at the Atlantic Theatre Company. My principal instrument is my voice.
