Kevin Lay is grateful to compose the music for We Met In Moscow. Largely self-taught, he studied composition at the University of Akron School of Music with Roger Zahab. Kevin is a certified teacher of Deep Listening, a composer’s sound practice developed by Pauline Oliveros. Pauline described Deep Listening as “a way of listening in every possible way to everything possible, to hear no matter what you are doing.” This is his Kevin’s third large scale musical theater work, the first orchestrating a farce called A Day in the life of Bob Newhire in 1998 and Starboy (as librettist) in 2004. Kevin had the pleasure of singing chorus for Peter Sellars, (the director) in 3 classic operas in the Chicago area in the 1980’s. He has sung with LOoP for three years. Kevin takes voice lessons from Gabrielle Juliette Widman and conducting lessons from Jason Sabino and Pat Vandehey.
Kevin wrote the music and lyrics for the Light Opera of Portland’s:
