The Twin Cities are home to many artists who have busy careers that take them all over the globe. Composer Robert Elhai is one such artist who is near and dear to my heart. Robert regularly works in theatre and film in NYC, LA, and London, as well as right here at home with local theatres and our world-class Minnesota Orchestra. He has orchestrated film scores for over 150 movies and worked on projects that have won all sorts of major awards: The Lion King, orchestrator (Tony for Best Musical, nomination, Best Orchestrations); Frida, orchestrator (Oscar, Best Musical, Film Score); and Grammy, Emmy, and Annie awards.
