David Newman is one of today’s most accomplished creators of music for film. In his 25-year career he has scored over 100 films, ranging from War of the Roses, Matilda, Bowfinger, and Heathers, to the more recent Tarzan and Serenity. Newman’s music has brought to life the critically acclaimed dramas Brokedown Palace and Hoffa; top-grossing comedies Galaxy Quest, The Nutty Professor, and Throw Mama From the Train; and award-winning animated films Ice Age and The Brave Little Toaster. He holds an Academy Award nomination for his score to the animated feature Anastasia.

Newman is also a highly sought-after conductor and appears with leading orchestras throughout the world. He has led subscription weeks with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall and regularly conducts the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl. In July 2011, he premiered West Side Story (film with live orchestra) with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and has conducted the work with numerous orchestras in the U.S. and abroad. Newman also conducts the annual movie night at the Hollywood Bowl. 

Newman has spent considerable time unearthing and restoring film music classics for the concert hall, and headed the Sundance Institute’s music preservation program in the late 1980s. That work continues while serving on the board of the American Youth Symphony since 2007.

The son of nine-time Oscar-winning composer Alfred Newman, David Newman was born in Los Angeles in 1954. He studied violin and piano from an early age and earned degrees in orchestral conducting and violin performance from the University of Southern California. From 1977 to 1982 he worked extensively in the motion picture and television industry. He is married to his wife Krystyna, and is the father of two girls, Diana and stepdaughter Brianne.
