GRANT RECIPIENT | MUSIC | MUSIC COMPOSITION
Tom Sivak is a composer, author, music director and conductor who’s composing credits run the gambit documentary films, musicals such as Sunshine City and a world premiere performance of his Prelude and Fugue for Orchestra by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He has a master’s degree from Northern Illinois University in music theory and composition. His goal is to “meld together a musical genre that may be initially unapproachable with one that invites the listener in for a visit with the hope that it may open their ears to a musical experience they have never had before.”
I am producing a concert reading of my opera, “Doctor Dilligaff’s Baboon” at The Palladium on August 29, 2016 funded by both St. Petersburg Arts Alliance and Creative Pinellas as well as a second performance of the opera in north Pinellas County (TBD) funded by Creative Pinellas.
