Victor Spiegel
Victor Spiegel is involved in every aspect of music from performing solo piano concerts to composing and recording film scores. Starting at the age of five, Victor began his study of piano and has been performing ever since his first recital at the age of six. In high school he joined the jazz band and went on to win with them and his own jazz combo the coveted Hollywood Bowl Battle of the Bands Sweepstakes Award.

His training in conducting, composing, arranging, and orchestration have brought him commissions from dance (Jean Erdmann, Ellen Bromberg, The Moving Company), theater (Berkeley Repertory, California Shakespeare Festival), commercials (Apple Computer, Lockheed, University of California) film and documentaries (Empire Pictures, James Culp Productions) as well as record albums, audiocassettes and CDs. He has also performed solo piano and jazz ensemble concerts of his own compositions. His body of work includes symphonic, string quartets, operas, and song cycles, electronic and chamber ensemble pieces.

His most recent interest is the unusual blending of jazz and Middle Eastern musics. He has also composed appropriate music for over fifty museum audio tour tapes leading him to explore Indonesian, Tibetan, Mayan, Impressionist, and other extremely diverse styles of music. Victor’s ability to absorb and synthesize many “dialects” of music marks him as an unusual and exciting contributor to the creative world of sound.

Victor Spiegel’s directing experience includes operas, children’s theater, and stage and film productions.
