Friday Feature: Jimmy Horan

James (Jimmy) Horan is all about the music. He has served as musical director, conductor, pianist, and arranger in New York (Meet Me in St. Louis, The Producers) and New Jersey theater venues (Paper Mill Playhouse) for over three decades. Jim has composed music and lyrics for three original theater pieces, most notably Chopin and Sand about the love affair between the great composer and the notorious writer. Holiday is based on the award winning Philip Barry play, which starred Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn on film. Jim is currently developing the book and score for Esquires, a satirical dark comedy based on his decade of experiences as a practicing attorney. Jim has performed as a singer and accompanist at leading New York City venues such as Danny's Skylight, The Duplex, Don't Tell Mama, Rose's Turn, and The Stonewall. His vocal and instrumental arrangements have been featured on critically acclaimed solo artist recordings, choral gospel and pop concerts on both the East and West coast, and by the Washington DC gay men's chorus. Jim is thrilled to be involved in supporting this important cause, while, at the same time, celebrating one of his idols of American popular music, Carole King. He is fond of his Italian heritage; he is, therefore, our musical maestro from whom all creativity flows.
