Happy March and welcome to a new Words On New Music audio podcast episode with Paul Muller and myself, Jim Goodin!
Last October when I was visiting Paul in Los Angeles we caught up again with friend and fellow composer/musician Shane W. Cadman who teaches and manages the Whittier College Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts in Whittier, CA. Shane plans and books performances for the 400 seat theatrical and musical performance arts space. We featured him two years ago on WONM and it was wonderful to meet-up again and bring this episode to be!
Among the many creative and interesting musical artists Shane has brought to the Shannon Center in his 8 years there, he has in the last two seen a dream come to fruition, bringing to the stage two celebrated, legendary musical artists who have both highly influenced his own musical life and creative work, Philip Glass and Harold Budd.
In my time visiting last fall Paul and I thought it would be great to sit down with Shane and have him speak about these performances and how they came to be of which very successful events, Glass in October 2017 and Budd in August 2018. Our meet-up took place first at a lovely outdoor sunny southern California lunch and then concluding for a few minutes inside the Shannon Center.
Join us now for a delightful conversation with Shane!
