The Electric Company is a popular PBS program which incorporates music and animation to enhance the comprehension of reading, phonics, and vocabulary. Episodes of this multi Emmy award-winning show are soon to be aired on HBO’s family network.
Since 2009 Vic Firth artist, Andres Patrick Forero has been an active member of the music ensemble featured on the Electric Company. From January of 2009 through April of 2011, Andres performed on all 53 episodes that were aired during that time.
This isn’t the only time that Andres’ talents have televised for a national audience. He and fellow Vic Firth artist, Benny Reiner, performed live with the cast and orchestra of the broadway hit musical, Hamilton, on last night’s Grammy Awards. Hamilton won the award for Best Musical Theatre Album.
