Dan's Orchestrations to Broadway

$3,450 of $4,950 goal

Raised by 41 people in 37 months
My name is Dan DeLange. My goal is to receive a Tony Award for best orchestrations on a Broadway show in the next 3 years, and so I’m taking steps to make this become a reality.


I have been ridiculously blessed, scoring numerous productions with ridiculously talented people, which in turn have showered me with ridiculously wonderful reviews and recommendations.  I even came ridiculously close to scoring my first full Broadway show as principal orchestrator this year!


Since my work is only being heard live, I have yet to have any quality recordings of my orchestrations. So the next hurdle I need to cross is getting professionally recorded samples of my orchestrations onto my website: DanDeLangeOrchestrations.com .


And that’s where I’m hoping you come in!


I am raising $4950 to hire the recording studio, vocalists and the amazing musicians from the Goodspeed Musicals pit orchestra so that prospective composers/arrangers and producers can hear my work in its best possible light.


Any help large or small (or even passing the word about my project to anyone that might be interested) would be greatly and humbly appreciated, and I welcome you to follow along and join me on my journey to the Tony Awards!




“Dan DeLange’s orchestrations are absolutely right…”

            -Julie Andrews, director for “The Boyfriend” national tour


“But the real stars of this “42nd Street” turn out to be the honking, bluesy orchestrations of Dan DeLange.”

            -New York Times, on “42nd Street” at Goodspeed Musicals


“A shining star of this show is the lush sound coming from the orchestra – what a surprise it was to count only seven in the group. They are truly amazing.”

            -TalkinBroadway.com, on “H.M.S. Pinafore” at the Pittsburgh Public Theater


“Dan DeLange’s orchestrations… are splendid! His small pit band works wonders.”

            -Variety Magazine


“….Maybe the best set of orchestrations I have heard for this show since the originals. And the amazing thing is that [he] got all the power and the glory of the score with only eight players. [Dan’s] orchestrations have to be a part of the ongoing legacy of “Show Boat”

            -Bruce Pomahac, Director of Music for the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization


“And the sound? Impressive. You’d never know the orchestra was only eight musicians. Dan DeLange’s orchestrations play a huge part in making the music so gorgeous.”

            -Variety Magazine, on “Camelot” at Goodspeed Musicals


“Dan is fabulously talented.”

                  -Brian Henson, CEO of the Jim Henson Company, on “Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas” at Goodspeed musicals


“They [Goodspeed's pit musicians] make Richard Rodger’s glorious musical score, brilliantly orchestrated here by Dan DeLange, reason enough to see and hear this magnificent production. The sounds made by these few musicians are as big as any great Broadway pit orchestra.”

                  - Connecticut Critics Circle, on “Carousel” at Goodspeed Musicals

I'll never forget the first time we all sang Paul's Emmet Otter score to your orchestrations. Magic. Best of luck!
