Fred Story received his third Emmy® statuette recently at the Mid-South Regional Emmy® Awards in Nashville. The category was “Music Composer/Arranger.” The show was “Monet in Normandy”, produced by Scott Davis for UNC-TV.
This documentary profiles what many critics believe was the most productive period in the French impressionist’s life. Fred’s score was inspired by the likes of Claude Debussy, Frederic Chopin and Erik Satie. According to Fred, “The challenge was to compose a score with original melodies that also captured the musical flavor of the era.”
