This digital journal chronicles the creation process of the musical experience ‘On Moonlight and Rain’, from its inception to the premiere on May 18th 2017. Rather than recounting a hero story, with an uninterrupted string of hooray messages, we’d like to show you what it’s really like to put a big music show together. It involves many dead ends, failures, frustrations and a tremendous amount of confidence that all will be well in the end. Enjoy your read.
