 Called “a new American pop master” by the Houston Chronicle, Bucchino’s songs have been performed and recorded by renowned pop  (Art Garfunkel, Judy Collins), theatre  (Liza Minnelli, Patti LuPone, Kristin Chenoweth, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Audra McDonald), cabaret (Barbara Cook, Michael Feinstein), and classical (Yo-Yo Ma, Deborah Voight, Nathan Gunn) artists as well as The Boston Pops, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in venues including Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Opera, The Hollywood Bowl, The Kennedy Center, The Sydney Opera House, London’s O2 Arena and The White House.  San Francisco audiences will have a rare opportunity to hear Bucchino perform his
songs in an intimate setting, and share stories of what inspired them.

 

Bucchino has written music and lyrics for the Broadway musical A Catered Affair (nominated for 12 Drama Desk Awards, and winner of the New York Drama League Award for Best musical, with a book by Harvey Fierstein), as well as the musicals Urban Myths, Lavender
Girl
, the new Danish musical Esaura, the revue It’s Only Life, the Dreamworks animated film “Joseph, Kind of Dreams,” and wrote the lyrics for the children’s musical Simeon’s Gift
(with a book by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton and music by Ian Fraser).  Some recordings of Bucchino’s work are: “Grateful, The Songs of John Bucchino” (with companion songbook), “Solitude Lessons” (another collection of original songs), “On Richard Rodgers’
Piano” (solo piano interpretations of Rodgers’ songs on the composer’s own Steinway, voted Best Instrumental CD by Show Business Weekly), and the PS Classics releases of the cast albums of “It’s Only Life” (with companion songbook) and “A Catered Affair.”  As part
of their Julie Andrews Collection, Harper Collins published a children's book, based on John’s song, called “Grateful, A Song of Giving Thanks” which was awarded the Parents’ Choice Gold Award. 

Among his honors are two Drama Desk nominations, The Johnny Mercer Songwriter Award, The ASCAP Foundation Richard Rodgers New Horizons Award, The Jonathan Larson Award, The Kleban Award, The Los Angeles Ovation Award (for the revue It’s Only Life), The DVD Premiere Award (for the song “Better Than I”), and the first annual Fred Ebb Award.
