Here at the Alliance, we come across many creative and talented individuals. From the incredible young artists and writers that participate in the Scholastic Awards each year to the brilliant teachers and jurors that work with us, our staff is constantly inspired by people like you.
But, did you know that many of our staff members are also artists and writers?
Our Web & IT Director, Dominic Matar, recently surprised us with some awesome news – he wrote the soundtrack to Coming Up Roses, a film starring Bernadette Peters that’s currently playing in theaters! Check out the trailer below:
At the Alliance, Dominic is in charge of the Awards’ website, registration site, and archives. But outside of the office, he is a songwriter and composer. Like many of the students we work with, Dominic continues to pursue his creative passions. His music has been featured in commercials from Canada to Malaysia and he has recorded several indie rock albums. Check out his website and listen to his tunes below. We’re sure you’ll agree that everything is coming up roses for Dominic!
