Kevin Kliesch wins Daytime Emmy Award for Sofia the First!
Congratulations to Kevin Kliesch for winning the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for Disney Channel’s Sofia The First!
Kliesch has worked as a composer and orchestrator on over 100 feature films spanning the past seventeen years, including ‘Frozen’, ‘The Hangover’, ‘Tangled’ and ‘Shrek Forever After’.

That year he earned two more nominations from BSO Spirit for their Jerry Goldsmith Awards in Best Television score (‘Thundercats‘) and Breakout Composer of the Year.
Kliesch’s recent composing projects also include DC Comics’ animated movies ‘Superman: Unbound’ and ‘Justice League: War’, along with the Walt Disney short film ‘Tangled Ever After’.
