Immediately after graduating, Mr. Holmes worked full time as a staff composer and engineer for Maryland Public Television, where he wrote the opening theme for the Peabody Award winning television series “Terra: Our World.” He attended law school at night, and diverted into being a New York City trial lawyer for 27 years before retiring and returning to composing. In-between trials he ran a very successful photography business specializing in musical theatre, and was the official photographer for the New Jersey All-State, Southern and Central regions choral and instrumental groups.
