Michael Starobin is a true luminary in musical theater with one of the most impressive resumes in the field.

Over the last forty years, Starobin has been the orchestrator for some of Broadway's most innovative musicals including Sunday in the Park with George, Falsettos, Assassins (garnering him a 2004 Tony Award for Best Orchestrations) and Next to Normal (for which he received another Tony Award for Best Orchestrations in 2009). He was the conductor and orchestrator for Disney's animated film The Hunchback of Notre Dame, orchestrated the songs for the film Tangled and contributed orchestrations to the film versions of Chicago, Nine and Beauty and the Beast (2017). He was recently Tony nominated for his work on the 2018 version of the multi-award winning musical Once on this Island (a musical he also orchestrated in 1990). The new Disney film Mary Poppins Returns is the latest movie to feature his incredible work.

We are so proud to have him here for a performance of the show he orchestrated on Broadway SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE.
