|"Music does make a difference."|
Sanya Henderson composes music primarily for theater and film. Her music is engaging, sensual, witty and versatile. In her projects for theater and film, Dr. Henderson displays tremendous sensitivity to the subject matter and the script’s inner dynamics, and pays remarkable attention to detail. Her music is rich with fascinating ambiences and moods, and although her roots are in classical music, she possesses a fresh, modern, and unique approach, combining influences from her upbringing in Macedonian folk music, to modern American pop.
