David Edricks - LMNOP

This is David’s set up for the show LMNOP,  a new musical at the Goodspeed Norma Terris Theater in Chester, Connecticut. A great production with music by Paul Loesel, lyrics by Scott Burkell and beautiful orchestrations by Lynne Shankel.

“It is an acoustic production and the percussion book is very orchestral, even though it is centered around the kit. A good mix of mallets, toys and effects made it a challenging book to play. It was all about the choreography in order to play everything Lynne wanted. I set it up in groups to get a good flow between instruments and still catch everything in time. She specifically wrote for the Miller Machine which was a real life saver. There is no way you could play the book without it. It was great fun for four weeks.”

David has been an active freelance percussionist in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York for over 30 years. He is a frequent sub at the Goodspeed Opera House and plays with the Hartford, New Haven, Bridgeport and Waterbury Symphonies. Since 2002, David has been an active percussionist on Broadway, subbing for  various productions.
