Auburn just got musically richer. Composer Elliot Anders, a Los Angeles native, is a new resident of our fair city, bringing his wealth of talent and original compositions with him.
“I grew up in L.A. Not many people can say that,” Anders chuckled. “I was interested in show business early on, acting as a child on the ‘Addams Family,’ ‘Mister Ed,’ ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’ … .”
Elliot Anders performed in bands in the 70s, and in the 80s became interested in film music.
His music has appeared in movies, documentaries and television. He also composed the music for “You Made Me Love You,” a musical based on the life of Judy Garland.
“I love every aspect of music, listening, composing and playing,” Anders said in a press release. “Friends say my life is about music. I say my music is about my life.” – by Carol Guild, Auburn Journal
He performed a retrospective of his compositions in concert on Sunday at the State Theatre – accompanied by a string quartet that includes Richard Altenbach, first violin; Sid Page, second violin; Melinda Rayne, viola; Alexandra Roedder, cello; and Dawn Simmons, vocalist.
