Tara is currently collaborating with producers, songwriters, and singers on songwriting projects in Los Angeles and Chicago. These recent pop demos were cowritten with Mike Malarkey.
A sample of past digital projects is below, including collaborations with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Random House Kids, and actors and writers from the Second City.
The Pumpkin Spice Tribute Song
An epic musical tribute to the rise and fall of pumpkin spice. Song by Tara Trudel, Neal Dandade, and Eddie Mujica. Video by Drop Stop Productions.
Uni the Unicorn Theme Song
Original song written by Tara Trudel and Nick Gage, based on the New York Times bestselling children's book, "Uni the Unicorn" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal (Random House Kids).
Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Warrior Spirit
Tara worked as a CSO Teaching Artist at the University of Chicago Charter School Woodlawn Campus, where she worked with a group of students to create a new school song. At its premiere, the song was performed by students from UCW, accompanied by Tara on piano, musicians from the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, and special guest Yo-Yo Ma on cello. The following videos were created several months later, after Tara returned to UCW to coach a group of students to prepare them for a recording of “Warrior Spirit”.
