Steve Goers, a grammy-nominated composer in Chicago, has created the music for the first fully authorized musical adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are. Steve writes that he “used Garritan Personal Orchestra almost exclusively” on this project. The show completely sold out its first run at the Apollo Theatre, and has since been extended twice, booking almost 100 tour dates.


Garritan Personal Orchestra was used in the holiday production of Cinderella in Chicago at the Emerald City Theatre. Steve Goers created the music and states, “I was literally mobbed afterwards, mostly by directors and board members of the theater, asking where I had recorded the orchestra! One of the older composers who was in attendance STILL doesn’t believe it was software.”
