Alan Steinberger holds the position of Principal Piano/Keyboard for both the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and the Pasadena Symphony. He is frequently featured in performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, LA Opera Orchestra, LA Chamber Orchestra, Muse/ique, Pacific Symphony, and Long Beach Symphony, and has recently been a guest artist with the National Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Seattle Symphony and Indianapolis Symphony, with upcoming appearances with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Credited and prominent throughout the score for the Academy Award-winning documentary March of the Penguins, Steinberger regularly plays piano, celesta and synthesizer for film scores by John Williams, Randy Newman and many other top Hollywood composers. He has been a surly mall entertainer on The Simpsons, a ragtime-playing elephant in Cats Don’t Dance, and the surrogate pianist for the one-handed thug in Tangled who dreams of leaving the life of crime to become a concert pianist.

Steinberger also regularly works as a composer, arranger and orchestrator, including the past nine seasons as composer for Laguna Beach’s Pageant of the Masters. He performs on virtually every keyboard instrument from accordion to pipe organ, and is likely the only artist both to have been named a Freunde des Hauses Bösendorfer and to have been caricatured on a Warner Brothers cartoon.

Nancy Roth, violinist and violist, is currently concertmaster of the Culver City Symphony and Marina Del Rey Summer Symphony. She is also principal second violinist of the Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay, and a member of the Pasadena Symphony. She is a former member of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, was co-principal violist of the Graz Philharmonic in Austria, and she served many years as concertmaster of the San Fernando Valley Symphony and the Carson-Dominguez Hills Symphony. Nancy has been a featured soloist with numerous Southern California orchestras including the Culver City Symphony, Carson Symphony, Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Southland Symphony Orchestra, Valley Symphony, and Rio Hondo Symphony. She has given recitals and radio broadcasts in the United States, Austria and Mexico, and she is currently a member of the new music group “TEMPO” based at CSU Northridge. Nancy is a member of the String Family Players (quintet), which performs educational programs for the Music Center On Tour, and she has been on the faculty of the Max Aronoff Viola Institute Summer Music Festival. She has played baroque violin and viola with James Tyler in the London Early Music Group and Los Angeles Musica Viva. Nancy holds a Bachelor of Music from CSUN, a Master of Music from the Juilliard School and a Doctorate of Musical Arts from USC.

Mary Anne Steinberger is active as a cellist in the film industry, with credits including featured performances on the TV cult hit Firefly and the groundbreaking series of Uncharted video games.
She has served for twenty-five years as principal cellist of the Downey Symphony, appeared in concert with the Pasadena, Pacific, New West and Long Beach Symphonies, played for the American Ballet Theater, Bolshoi, San Francisco and Luminario ballet companies, and given recitals with the Blackbird Trio, Kewa Ensemble and Lynx Quartet.

In her spare time, Mary Anne can often be found either on her Lipizzan "Zeus" practicing dressage and riding the trails of the Tujunga Wash, or in her solar powered electric car riding the asphalt of the Crescenta Valley.
