Ron Melrose has spent the last thirty-one years in New York City, honoring twin commitments to the theatre and the church. His Broadway credits include music direction (Jersey Boys, Sinatra at Radio City, Imaginary Friends, Scarlet Pimpernel), dance and/or vocal arranging (Sweet Smell of Success, Jekyll & Hyde, Perfectly Frank, The Act, Marilyn: An American Fable, Woman of the Year, Cabaret), and conducting (Smile, Annie, The Rink).

As a composer and lyricist, Ron's credits include Superdimensional Microbabes (an upcoming anime-based musical), Luck (a collaboration with Rick Elice and Marshall Brickman), Fourtune (Off-Broadway), The Silver Swan (National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship), two Harvard Hasty Pudding shows (Tots in Tinseltown, Bewitched Bayou), a Sonata for Flute and Piano, and a variety of songs for cabarets and for NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

His church music experience includes a ten-year music directorship at All Angels' Episcopal Church, NYC, where he formed and directed a gospel choir from the homeless community served by the church. Ron's liturgical compositions include three theatrical projects available on CD (The Missing Peace, Songs I Won't Be Singing, Early One Morning), a gospel-based Requiem, and a number of choral anthems, offertories, and settings of service music. His formal education includes degrees in philosophy (Harvard) and choral conducting (Westminster Choir College).
