Eric Schorr

Eric is a playwright who also composes music for theater, television and film.

Eric was commissioned by Virginia Stage Company to write the score and libretto for I Sing the Rising Sea, a new musical about science, poetry and climate change that will have its premiere in Norfolk in the fall of 2016.
