Nonagenarian David Amram boasts a remarkable eight-decade career in music. In his early years, Amram made his mark as jazz French horn player, sharing the stage with legendary artists such as Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, and Miles Davis. He later left an indelible legacy in classical music, marked by collaborations with the likes of Leonard Bernstein. Amram’s impressive classical repertoire encompasses over 100 orchestral and chamber music compositions, in addition to numerous scores for theater and film. A selection of his notable film credits include ‘The Manchurian Candidate’ (1962), ‘Splendor in the Grass’ (1961), Arthur Miller’s ‘After The Fall,’ and the iconic Beat Generation film featuring and written by Jack Kerouac ‘Pull My Daisy’ (1959).

With a discography that spans over 20 records, recipient of over 8 honorary doctorates, and numerous other recognitions, Amram’s contributions to the world of music are profound. In 1966, he made history as the first Composer-In-Residence for the New York Philharmonic, solidifying his status as one of the most influential, not to mention most performed, composers of our era.
