Will Healy is a composer and pianist based in New York. Noted for his "lushly bluesy" sound and "adroitly blended... textures" (New York Times), he is the artistic director of ShoutHouse, an ensemble of 15 hip-hop, jazz, and classical musicians. After his time playing trumpet in an Afrobeat band, he grew interested in collaborating with performers from many corners of the New York music scene. In addition, he is an accomplished pianist specializing in Bach, with a repertoire that includes the complete Goldberg Variations and WTC Book 1. Recent awards include a Charles Ives Scholarship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, an ASCAP Morton Gould Award, a 2017 JFund commission, and prizes in the Juilliard and Kaleidoscope Orchestra Composition Competitions. Healy was the recipient of the Richard Rodgers Scholarship at The Juilliard School, where he studied with John Corigliano.
Gabriel Zucker is a pianist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist from New York. Classically trained in piano and composition, Zucker combines maximalist compositions with the progressive improvisation of New York's creative music scene. His music has received two ASCAP composition awards, and was awarded 4.5 stars in a recent review in Downbeat magazine. A Yale graduate and Rhodes Scholar, Zucker has performed throughout New York at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, and the Jazz Gallery as well as in 18 countries around the world.
