His incidental score for The Picture of Dorian Gray, presented in May 2017 at the University of Oxford’s Michael Pilch Studio Theatre in the United Kingdom, was praised by Katie Stanton of The Oxford Student as “haunting... [and] genuinely moving throughout, the string quartet heightening a death scene with particular success.” Nathan graduated from Saint Thomas Choir School in 2007, and earned his B.M. summa cum laude from the University of Connecticut in 2015, where he studied composition with Kenneth Fuchs. This past May, he received his M.M. from Mannes/The New School, where he studied with Lowell Liebermann. He is a member of ASCAP and the American Choral Directors Association.
