As a writer, producer, and director, Michael Roush has had a lengthy career in the development of creative content for independent film and theater production.
During his years in Colorado at Cherry Creek High School (a Grammy® Signature School), Roush was active in Performing Arts as a performer in Musical Theatre and Drama, as well as Choral, drawing upon a heavy Fine Arts course load which also included theory, composition, and music appreciation.
While at The University of Colorado, his passion for music production led to successful stints behind the scenes in the concert industry. This broad array of high profile, live performance experience would later give way to independent film production and, eventually, creative writing.
When a recent opportunity presented itself to re-imagine one particular narrative story into an evening ballet, subsequent successful productions in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles sparked not only a return to live performance, but also inspired new ways of storytelling.
Combining classical music with his love for ballet, Roush began composing new and original symphonic poems for dance movement and colorful theatrics. Stearns Wharf, a piece for Chamber Orchestra, represents Roush’s recording debut.
A staunch supporter of arts in public education, Roush currently resides in Southern California.
