Podcast: Lee Holdridge, November 2008

5 June 2016

This ASMAC Luncheon podcast features Lee Holdridge, our guest speaker at the ASMAC luncheon on Wednesday, November 19, 2008. Lee spent his early years in Costa Rica, beginning music studies on the violin at the age of ten with Hugo Mariani, then the conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica. At fifteen – now determined to be a composer – he moved to Boston to finish high school and study composition with Henry Lasker. Later, he moved to New York to continue his music studies and begin his professional career as a composer. While in New York, he wrote chamber works, rock pieces, songs, theatre music and background scores for short films. Holdridge’s successes in New York came to the attention of Neil Diamond who brought him to Los Angeles to write arrangements for Diamond’s forthcoming albums. A string of gold and platinum hits followed, which led to Diamond and Holdridge collaborating on the film score for “Jonathan Livingston Seagull.” (Learn more…)
