Career

Holdridge was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, of a Puerto Rican mother and an American father, Leslie Holdridge, a botanist and climatologist.[2]

While living in Costa Rica, at age ten, he studied the violin with Hugo Mariani, who was at the time the conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica. He then moved to Boston, where he finished high school and studied composition with Henry Lasker.[2]

As an adult, Holdridge moved to New York City to continue his music studies and begin his career as a professional composer.[2] There, he composed chamber works, rock pieces, songs, theater music and background scores for short films, and eventually came to Neil Diamond's notice. Diamond then brought Holdridge with him to Los Angeles to write arrangements for his forthcoming albums. After several gold and platinum hits, the two collaborated on the Grammy Award winning film score for Jonathan Livingston Seagull.[2]

Holdridge has composed and orchestrated for many films, including Jeremy (1973),[3] Mustang Country (1976), The Pack (1977), The Other Side of the Mountain Part 2 (1978), Like Mom, Like Me (1978), Moment by Moment (1978), Tilt (1979), French Postcards (1979), American Pop (1981),[4] The Day the Loving Stopped (1981), The Beastmaster (1982), Mr. Mom (1983), Splash (1984), Micki & Maude (1984), Transylvania 6-5000 (1985), The Men's Club (1986), A Tiger's Tale (1987), Big Business (1988), Old Gringo (1989), The Secret of NIMH 2: Timmy to the Rescue (1998) Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport (2000),[2] Puerto Vallarta Squeeze (2004) and Brothers at War (2009).[5] He composed for several television series, including Sara, East of Eden, I'll Take Manhattan, Atomic Train, The Mists of Avalon, American Family, The Brooke Ellison Story, Moonlighting, and Beauty and the Beast.[2]

Holdridge has performed and recorded in several concerts, including The Golden Land, the Jefferson Tribute, his suite from the opera Lazarus and His Beloved, the Concerto for Viola and Chamber Orchestra, the Concertino for Violoncello and Strings, the Serenade for Oboe and Strings, the Fantasy Sonata for ‘Cello and Piano, the Elegy for Strings and Harp, and Sonnet for soprano and orchestra.[2]
