    A story told from behind the camera creating moments and snapshots throughout the show, A Moment Captured is a simple but effective show specifically written for a small ensemble. This feel-good music features memorable melodies that are whimsical and nostalgic in nature with original composition that is inspired by composers like Gershwin and Michael Giacchino.  Additionally, an arrangement of Pictures at an Exhibition (Modest Mussorgsky, 1874, public domain) is woven throughout the show providing a conceptual through line in the music.

    The key visual ingredient to this show is the use of various large picture frames props that highlight and capture various individuals and sections as they are featured, ideally culminating in a frame that includes the full band during the ballad impact. 

    This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2016 and was released for the 2017 season.

   *Perusal score available upon request
