About

Ira Hearshen is one of America’s most popular and successful orchestrators and arrangers. He has written for many Hollywood films, such as Toy Story and The Scorpion King. He has also written for the concert stage, especially wind band, notably his Pulitzer Prize-nominated Symphony on Themes of John Philip Sousa, which is adventurously constructed, richly melodic and colourfully scored.

His unique takes on Strike Up The Band and There’s No Business Like Show Business provide moments of rich humour, whilst the Divertimento for Band mines the American jazz vernacular with true rhythmic verve.
