Check out the reviews so far!
“The orchestra, under the direction of James Olmstead, provides lush support.”
“Additionally, it is always thrilling to have a live orchestra; this one strongly led by music Director James Olmstead.”
“Completing the magic is the beautifully performed score by Music Director James Olmstead and the entire Band.”
“As always, the band at the Engeman, led by musical director James Olmstead on keyboard, is topnotch and does full justice to Bernstein’s musical genius.”
“The score is once again magically performed by musical director James Olmstead (Engeman: A Chorus Line, Evita, Music Man, A Christmas Story, White Christmas, South Pacific) on keyboard, and the band with Craig Coyle on keyboard; Robert Dalpiaz and Joel Levy on reeds; Joe Boardman, Steve Henry and Pete Auricchio on trumpets; Brent Chiarello and Frank Hall on trombone; Russell Brown on bass; and Josh Endlich on percussion.”
