Newest Signing Heather Christian Performs at Exclusive Music Sales Corp. Reception


Schirmer Theatrical and Music Sales Creative were thrilled to host an exclusive performance this past Monday for their latest signing – the Obie Award-winning composer Heather Christian. The showcase was held in the Music Sales Corp. New York office, where guests enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres while the Sundance Fellow performed a variety of her theatre and contemporary avant-folk works – including unreleased songs from her forthcoming albums House/Hymn II and Animal Wisdom.

Christian captivated the intimate audience, as she flexed her powerhouse vocals and let her Mississippi roots shine. Her set list included “Willie and the Owls” (The World Is Round, 2014 Obie, Special Citation), “Talk to me Vegas” (Mission Drift: Drama League Outstanding Performance Nominee) “Agnus Dei” (Animal Wisdom) and “Phoenix” (House/Hymn II). She was accompanied by backing vocalists Amber Gray (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812) and Kristen Sieh (Orange Is the New Black, Boardwalk Empire).

As an added bonus, select film scores by Christian played overhead to welcome guests before her performance – including snippets from Lemon, Pauline Alone and Woman in Deep.

President Robert Thompson warmly welcomed Christian to the Music Sales Corp. / Schirmer Theatrical team and made note of her recent accomplishments – including that the 2017 Sundance favorite she scored, Lemon, was recently picked up by Magnolia Pictures. The event was hosted by President Robert Thompson and Creative Projects Coordinator Alyssa Foster, with special thanks to the Music Sales Corp. team.
