CHELSEA MUSIC ORCHESTRATION RENTALS
THE STEVE MARGOSHES SYMPHONIC LIBRARY
Steve Margoshes is a Composer, Orchestrator, Pianist and Conductor whose career has spanned 50 years. He composed the score for Fame-The Musical, the inspirational show about New York’s High School of the Performing Arts. Fame has played worldwide for 30 years, and, making Theater history, will open in London’s West End this year for the eighth time! Steve orchestrated many Broadway musicals including Big River (Drama Desk Award), The Who’s Tommy (Drama Desk Award), Elton John’s Aida, Smokey Joe’s Café, and Soul Doctor (Drama Desk nomination). He contributed to many Jim Steinman recordings, including Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell, and orchestrated the stage musical Tanz der Vampire (Dance of the Vampires), directed by Roman Polanski; its premiere was in Vienna and it is still running in Germany and Austria more than 20 years later. Steve was also commissioned by Andrew Lloyd Webber to develop an orchestral suite from Jesus Christ Superstar.
With Hair authors James Rado & Gerome Ragni he composed the musicals Sun and Jack Sound. Steve has composed for symphony, ballet, rock recordings, and songs in various styles in addition to his many-faceted shows. An extensive body of his “pops” pieces for orchestra was recorded by the Budapest Symphony on Hungaraton & Albany Records. “This Is Forever,” an after-life piano rhapsody, featured Steve at the piano with the orchestra. The solo piano version (also with Steve performing) was choreographed by Jacqulyn Buglisi & presented at the Joyce Theater NYC as part of the 20th anniversary of Buglisi Dance Theatre. Also among the body of work recorded in Budapest is “American Parade,” which was performed by the West Point Army Band and became the subject of a documentary (of the same name) by filmmaker Frank Basile.
