Garry Schyman to premiere concerto with the L.A. Jewish Symphony

Garry Schyman, alumnus and USC Thornton Screen Scoring faculty member, will premiere a new viola concerto, Zingaro, with the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony on August 21. The program, conducted by Noreen Green and featuring violist Matthew Cohen, highlights music by composers from the film and gaming industries, including selections from Schyman’s scores for the BioSchock game series.

Also on the program is Classical Guitar senior Max Brenner, performing the Elmer Bernstein Guitar Concerto that was originally composed for Thornton alumnus Christopher Parkening.
