He writes scores for film, theater and dance and has been called upon to arrange and produce music for an incredible diversity of projects including productions of “Swing!” and “Rent” in the Twin Cities.
Maurer’s done everything from helping Eric Clapton with a few chords to arranging 1980s hits for the Minnesota Orchestra.
