David Newman

Composer & Conductor

David Newman is one of today’s most accomplished creators of music for film. In his 30-year career he has scored more than 110 films, ranging from War of the Roses, Matilda, Bowfinger, and Heathers to the more recent Five Flights Up and Serenity. His music has brought to life the critically acclaimed dramas Brokedown Palace and Hoffa; top-grossing comedies Galaxy Quest and Throw Mama from the Train; and award-winning animated films Ice Age, The Brave Little Toaster, and Anastasia. Mr. Newman holds an Academy Award nomination for his score to Anastasia, and was the first composer to have a piece — 1001 Nights — performed in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s FILMHARMONIC series, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen.

Mr. Newman is also a highly sought-after conductor and appears with leading orchestras throughout the world, including the New York, Los Angeles, and Royal philharmonic orchestras; San Diego and Boston Symphony Orchestras; Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras; Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin; and Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra. He is currently on a mini-tour performing live, with orchestra, movies such as West Side Story, Back to the Future, Star Trek Into Darkness, and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (leading the last of these with the New York Philharmonic in May 2017).

The son of nine-time Oscar-winning composer Alfred Newman and an active composer for the concert hall, David Newman has composed works that have been performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Indianapolis Symphony, and Long Beach Symphony, as well as at the Ravinia Festival, Spoleto Festival USA, and Chicago’s Grant Park Music Festival. He also composed a violin-orchestra suite for Sarah Chang based on the songs from West Side Story. Passionate about nurturing the next generation of musicians, Mr. Newman serves on the Board of the American Youth Symphony, a 51-year-old pre-professional orchestra based in Los Angeles, and in 2010 he served on the faculty of the Aspen Music Festival in the Film Scoring Program.
