Bruce Broughton Honored

On Saturday, I had the privilege of introducing award-winning composer Bruce Broughton as he was about to receive the New West Symphony’s “Bravo Award for Musical Excellence” at a fundraising gala in Santa Monica, Calif. It was a delightful event that included performances of several Broughton concert works, capped by the composer himself at the piano and his wife Belinda on violin performing themes from his famous Silverado score.
