Alex Silverman has won acclaim and awards for his composition, arrangement, and direction of music. Though he is most often found in the theatre or in front of a choir, his output includes work for TV, Radio and Film. He is comfortable working in a broad range of styles- from Baroque Opera to contemporary Jazz, sometimes both at the same time. Alex’s approach to music-making is thoughtful and playful, and his distinctive voice has proved increasingly popular with performers, critics and audiences alike.
