Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey

        Matthew Lowy holds a B.M. in Music Composition from The Boston Conservatory.  While at school, he collaborated with choreographers in the dance division as well as instrumentalists and singers from the music, voice, and theater divisions. Premieres include performances by the Juventas Ensemble, the Ludovico Ensemble, the Boston Conservatory Composers’ Orchestra, and the 2014 Winterworks dance show. 

        Fallen Skies, an original musical composed while Matt was at The Boston Conservatory, premiered at the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival. The piece received an Overall Excellence Award for music composition. 

        Matt is currently working on a new project, How Christmas Feels, which will be performed with the C.I.C Theater Company in Boston in November/December 2017.

        Shortly after graduating from The Boston Conservatory, Matt played keyboard 1 on the 2015 national tour of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, and travelled to China for two months as the associate music director and keyboard 2 player on the 2016 tour of My Fair Lady.  He recently closed the 2017 U.S. national tour of 42nd Street as the music director and conductor/keyboardist.  For the 2016 DAMES benefit concert, honoring Marin Mazzie, Matt was the associate music director to Zina Goldrich. 

        Since 2010, Matt has been on staff for the annual summer conservatory at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey, working as a assistant music director, accompanist, and arranger, and was the music director/conductor of the program in 2016.  He is also the music director of the Paper Mill Broadway Show Choir.

        Matt has experience with teaching music to students and colleagues of all ages, and focuses on integrating accuracy, musicality, interpretation, and technique into every project. 

Arranger/Orchestrator

        Matt's choral arrangements have been heard at the Paper Mill Playhouse in the annual New Voices concert. He also arranges the shows for Conservatory Cabaret, an outreach performance group from The Boston Conservatory. 
        Additionally, Matt transcribes, transposes, and arranges full songs and audition cuts.  Mashups are his specialty!  His work is clean and accurate, the turn around is very quick, and the rates are extremely reasonable.
        Matt has been studying piano since age 7, and is well-versed in all musical theater styles, including jazz, rock/pop, etc.  He is a proficient sight-reader and improviser, and can also sight-transpose.  An extremely sensitive accompanist, Matt is comfortable following singers, instrumentalists, and can conduct from the piano.
