learn about new music I haven't heard. Some of my current favorites
are Vienna Teng, Ludo, Rush, Indigo Girls, R.E.M, Goo Goo Dolls,
Mumford and Sons, and Imagine Dragons. I listen to a lot of
soundtracks and musicals- Les Miz is my all time favorite, but I
also love Last Five Years, Rent, Wicked, Candide, Next to Normal
and anything by Sondheim.
There's also the part of my music collection that totally gives me
away as a composer- some of my favorites and biggest influences are

Strauss and Mahler. I also have a huge soft spot for contemporary
choral composers like Morten Lauridsen, Eric Whitacre, or Z.

good anytime. Popcorn is also up there as a favorite treat.
