NEW YORK CITY READINGS
With assistance from the Australia Council and Power Arts, Matthew recently conducted developmental readings of his third musical Atlantis in NYC. During this research trip, Matthew also held the first U.S. concert of his music on September 12th, 2012, hosted by Ars Nova with guest vocalists Jeremy Kushnier (Jersey Boys, Broadway), Alexandra Socha (Spring Awakening, Broadway), Kevin Massey (Memphis, Broadway) and Ryah Nixon (9 to 5 American tour).
This follows on from Matthew's 2011 Churchill Fellowship trip through which he was mentored by Oscar and Grammy Award winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz. As part of the mentorship process, Matthew presented two readings of his second musical Happy People at Playwrights Horizons.
Matthew also won the 2011 University of Tasmania/Stephen Schwartz Songwriting Award for the song Dignity from his first musical Metro Street. To watch Margi De Ferranti's stunning performance of Dignity, check out the Video area.
