Project Description

Laura Converse

Laura started improvising music as a kid just to break up the tedious classical piano practice—not realizing that there was this magical thing where people improvised entire shows for crowds that liked it.  Being part of that magical thing now makes all that time getting good at improvising music seem like it was part of a bigger strategy, but it was not. That was improvised, too. Laura is the human behind surreal artist/composer Lurm.

Laura is the very talented Lead Musician here at The Upfront Theatre.  Able to improvise piano music on the spot to set the tone of a scene or accompany singers, Laura brings an amazing addition to our shows.
