Hannibal Native Nominated for Grammy
A native of Hannibal is getting a musical honor of a lifetime.
Composer Jeremy Levy has been nominated for a Grammy. Levy did a reimagination of the orchestral suite “The Planets,” by Gustav Holst. He says he fell in love with the piece while attending college at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
After hearing the music again at a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, Levy says he felt inspired to take on the challenge of bringing a new interpretation of the music to life. He did a jazz recording, titling a track on his new album “Uranus the Magician.” The album has been nominated for a Grammy for best arrangement instrumental or a-cappella.
