Jessica De Maria-15
Atlanta-based composer Jessica De Maria is currently premiering her original musical (written with another Atlanta-based artist, Chase Peacock) The Pretty Pants Bandit in Roswell (north of Atlanta), at the Cultural Arts Center as you are reading this bio. As a bit of interesting information, Mr. Montague actually knows this particular composer!
This will be the last Composer of the Week for the 2021-2020 school year. Since we are in the midst of ERBs all students have until April 20 (G Day) to listen and read.
She is a graduate of Oglethorpe University (also here in Atlanta) and has written several musicals and songs (as a freelance composer).
Here are two songs from The Pretty Pants Bandit (written with collaborator Chase Peacock):
