Dan and Cheryl Foliart -- a Hollywood Composer and a Music Executive -- Visit the TU Campus
On this edition of AT, an interesting and far-reaching chat with Dan and Cheryl Foliart -- a husband-and-wife team who are, respectively, a Hollywood composer and a music executive, and who are both currently visiting TU as J. Donald Feagin Guest Artists. (You can read more about the activities they will participate in during their two-day visit to the TU campus here.) The couple speaks with us about how they got started in the film-and-TV subset of the music business, how their careers have grown and developed over time, and how they themselves met. They also talk about some of the recent and quite fundamental changes that have affected the music world -- and indeed, affected all of the media landscape, including film/TV/video production. By way of background, Dan is best known for his work on "Roseanne," "7th Heaven," "Laverne & Shirley," and "Beverly Hills 90210," while Cheryl Foliart has served as a Vice-President for Walt Disney Company since 1996 (and has worked on shows like "Home Improvement," "Lost," "Ugly Betty," "Scrubs," and "Grey's Anatomy").
