2002 Olympic Games (Salt Lake City)​​
 

Mark holds the distinct honor of serving as Music Director for two Olympics! Again, produced by Don Mischer, the Salt Lake City Opening and Closing Ceremonies were directed by Kenny Ortega and featured artist designs by the great Michael Curry.

 

"To be a part of two Olympics is pretty much indescribable. So many talented collaborators and the people of Salt Lake City are so friendly. The great Utah Symphony and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir gave so much of themselves. A tremendous honor!"

The River

The River

"The River" is the 2nd movement of what became a five-movement Symphony of the South" and was one of the most memorable artistic moments in the opening ceremonies. It was a "musical quilt" made up of various melodies that came from the south.

Run Through Time

A wonderful tribute to all of the cities who had hosted the games beginning with Athens in 1896.

Conducting the Finale

Conducting the Finale

Producer, Don Mischer, asked me to compose a song for the finale of the opening ceremonies. I immediately brought in the extraordinary lyricist, Lorraine Feather (http://www.lorrainefeather.com). The result was "Faster, Higher, Stronger," the Olympic motto and was performed by opera legend, Jessye Norman. We received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music and Lyrics!
