Please enjoy a few of my arrangements, below. The first, also a conducting sample, is the production number "Coffee Break" from How to Succeed, which I music-directed at the 5th Avenue Theatre in 2016. I wrote a new dance arrangement, which begins around the 2'15" mark. Next is of my barbershop, Apple Pie Time, performing an arrangement of Queen's "Somebody to Love" at our first public performance at West Chester University on May 4th, 2010. Third is a suite from "In The Heights," commissioned by the NYC-Based quintet, Calliope Brass. Last is a mashup called "Dream, Nowadays" for my group BariToned.
Below are a couple examples of my transcription work. For each, you can listen to the original demo, look at my sheet music, and also listen to the MIDI playback of the file to compare it with the original, aurally. Sometimes my intention is to grab every last note, while other times I try to standardize grooves for a cleaner accompaniment, which I always discuss with my collaborators.
Below is my transcription for the fully-orchestrated dance arrangement of "June is Bustin' Out All Over", originally created for the 1992 London revival of Carousel. The modified ending is an intentional discrepancy.
