New works on the horizon!

A lot of new and exciting projects are in the works here at JHM! 

First of all, we are pleased to announce Jessica’s collaboration with the playwright and actress Kathleen Wrinn on her new musical theatre work, providing orchestration for and arranging the original piano/vocal score of Ten: The Story of Grace and Joe.  Stay tuned for further updates!

In addition, JHM is embarking upon a journey of epic proportions as Jessica begins work on her first full-length opera.  The libretto is based on Thurso’s Landing, the epic narrative poem by poet Robinson Jeffers.  Jessica is starting a blog so you can read along with her progress on this massive undertaking.  Check back soon to read her first post!
