CCMT are delighted to announce that internationally acclaimed songwriter/composer Jason Robert Brown will be flying to Auckland for one night only, to conduct a Master Class for them, on Friday 18th March 2011.
Hailed as “one of Broadway’s smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim” (Philadelphia Inquirer), JRB won a Tony Award for his score to “Parade” in 1999. His “extraordinary, jubilant theatre music” (Chicago Tribune) has been heard all over the world in the hundreds of productions of his musicals every year (“The Last Five Years”, “Songs for a New World”, “13”, etc.), or in his own incendiary live performances. His Auckland appearance will be at the end of an Australian wide tour, performing his music in concert and conducting master classes.
Twelve talented individuals from the Auckland region have been selected to perform with Jason Robert Brown at the Musgrove Theatre in Auckland. The three hour Master Class will have an audience limited to just 100 people, to experience this master in action.
