AudioStories and us.
In July of 2020, the AudioStories team woke up to a startling reality. This year, because of the pandemic, the world won’t have the usual opportunities to hear and tell the Christmas story—in public concerts, plays, sing-ins, and candlelight services. With that in mind, the team—an outgrowth of WarnerBoothe— asked “How can we fill the gap and bless the world?” The answer to that question was NATIVITY.
For nearly 20 years now, the team behind NATIVITY have contributed to the most-watched Christmas specials on PBS (Christmas with the Tabernacle Choir). The centerpiece of these annual programs has been an original or newly adapted Christmas story, presented by world class performers including Tom Brokaw, Jane Seymour, Hugh Bonneville, Kristen Chenoweth, the Sesame Street Muppets, and many others (view samples of their performances here).
The AudioStories team includes producers, writers, composers, performers, and engineers who have worked together on a variety of creative endeavors over twenty years. David Warner and Ross Boothe, founding partners, continue to provide consulting to major organizations in the areas of media, technology, music, live performances and events, tourism, education, and multi-cultural outreach. They are the creators of major live productions and films, a groundbreaking app called StoryMedia (for user-generated marketing by Adobe, Canvas LMS, Broadway’s “Dear Evan Hansen,” and others), and the Everyone Leads initiative.
