the games i play

"The Games I Play" is an arrangement of the song from William Finn and James Lapine's musical Falsettos. For this project, I expanded the original four-piece orchestration into an ensemble of 15 players. 

Falsettos is a show that is very close to my heart, and it was a gateway to the more obscure side of musical theatre I was dying to explore at a young age. It is a privilege to be able to bring my vision to this song.
