Paul Chihara
Jul 09 , 1938 - Present

"It is almost easier to think of Paul Chihara as several different composers. There is the Chihara whose sensitivity to exquisite instrumental color has made him a favorite with such performers as conductor Seiji Ozawa and the Sequoia  String Quartet.  There is, however, a strong theatrical side to Chihara which expresses itself in works for dance, musical theater, and film. And there is Chihara’s love for American popular music of the ‘30s and ‘40s." -Mark Swed (The Los Angeles Times)
