Famed Composer Brings Tales of Broadway, Movies and TV to New College
Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Carol Burnett, Hugh Jackman, Liza Minelli and most recently Michelle Williams: Composer David Krane has worked with all of them.
He’ll share his stories in “Composing for Broadway, Film and TV,” the next event in the New Topics New College discussion series, at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18, in the Mildred Sainer Pavilion at New College of Florida.
Krane, a protégé of Leonard Bernstein, has written, arranged and/or orchestrated music for dozens of Broadway and movie musicals. They include the currently running revival of “Cabaret,” as well as the Oscar-winning film version of “Chicago,” and the upcoming film version of Stephen Sondheim’s “Into The Woods,” which premieres on Christmas Day.
In an interview format with New College Provost Stephen Miles, professor of music and director of the New Music New College series, Krane will discuss what it takes to create a musical, how the process differs for Broadway, film and television, and what it’s like working with entertainment legends.
Tickets are $20 for the discussion and a reception after the talk. For reservations and information, call the New College Events Hotline at 487-4888 or visit donate.ncf.edu/newtopics. More information is available at ncf.edu/new-topics-new-college.
