Jordon Weinhold recently composed original music for a production at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center. Read what he has to say about his experience!
“I recently composed original music for “The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-time” at Ephrata Performing Arts Center. This production was supposed to open in March of 2020, but closed 1 week before opening due to the pandemic. That was a devastating day for myself, the actors, and the crew; everyone worked incredibly hard. A year later, we opened the show to live audiences (limited capacity) and it couldn’t have been more rewarding. I composed 100 minutes of music for the two-hour play, and it was nearly 80 individual music pieces. The lockdown of 2020 was actually a blessing in disguise. It gave me the opportunity to relook at my original work and see what adjustments could have been made. I somewhat started from scratch and we are were all pleased with the final version of the score. I am now in rehearsals for “The Boys In The Band” at the same theatre (June 17 – 26) and it’s going really well. We’re all vaccinated/ the cast, production staff and crew. And it’s so wonderful to be back doing what we love.”
