The show’s music director, Peter Hodgson, found Matt to bring Ms. Pen’s incredibly complicated score from page to stage. We (the singers, music director, composer and I) were consistently impressed with his technical skill, musicality and commitment. Matt is a fantastic pianist and a great collaborator. He was always on time, positive, and gave a beautiful performance. I cannot recommend him enough.” April 22, 2011
