Kooman and Dimond at the Kennedy Center

Michael Kooman Chris Dimond Anderson Davis Natalie Weiss

On February 4, 2009, Michael Kooman and Chris Dimond were invited to present a set of their songs at the Kennedy Center as part of the Millennium Stage's 12th Anniversary "Broadway: Today and Tommorow" series. They in turn asked Natalie Weiss and Anderson Davis to join them to perform the songs. All of the videos on this page are from that concert, which was sponsored by Target and by Fannie Mae.

Their most recent musical, DANI GIRL, has been workshopped at the Kennedy Center's New Visions/New Voices Festival, American Conservatory Theatre, the ASCAP/Disney Musical Theater Workshop, CAP-21, and was recently awarded the KC/ACTF Musical Theatre Award. The duo's song cycle HOMEMADE FUSION has been produced at CMU, the Pittsburgh CLO's Late Night Cabaret, the Zipper Theater, Monday Night New Voices: Chicago, and has been featured in several NAMT showcases.
