Mike Moise, Hamilton’s Assistant Conductor, is super fun and full of energy. He started his music career at four years old by plunking out Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera BY EAR and by the end of his first episode Mike tells us the story of playing Andy Blankenbuehler’s Cats for ALW himself. But before that, Mike tells the story of how he had lived in NYC for less than a week before Sir Alex Lacamoire called him in to audition for Hamilton.
In this episode, Scott Wasserman (Hamilton's Ableton Programmer) shows love for #HamiltonPR, talks his podcast Song Salad, and goes in on his experience working on Lin-Manuel Miranda's 21 Chump Street.
