About

David Amram - composer, conductor, multi-instrumental virtuoso and author - is one of the most versatile, acclaimed and truly unpredictable musicians America has produced. His surprising litany of achievements include the world's record for number of performances of the Brahms Horn Trio (during his military service in the 1950s), musical collaborations with Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsburg, numerous film scores including his acclaimed music for 'The Manchurian Candidate', pioneering work in promoting native American and world music, advocacy for music education and youth music programs, and a tour of Cuba in 1977 with Stan Getz and Earl "Fatha" Hines (the first visit by American musicians since the trade embargo of 1962).

In 2012, the New York Chamber Music Festival presented an evening of Amram's chamber music performed by acclaimed artists.
