9/11/01

On Oct. 29 at The Houseman Theatre the song “9/11/01“, written by Steven, will be performed by Ken Prymus (“Cats”). As a composer, I wanted to contribute to the healing from this disaster. That is why I wrote this song . I hope, in some very small way, it can help people cope with the death of their relatives, friends and loved ones. The CD has also been recorded with vocalist John Ayres, currently on tour with South Pacific. To hear an MP3 of this song click here (it is a 4MB MP3 file, so it may take some time to load).
