About Kurt Heinecke
From its beginning 21 years ago, Kurt has been the creator of the sound that has defined the world-famous VeggieTales® and 3-2-1 Penguins® video series. His roles have encompassed song-writing, co-writing, scoring, arranging, performance, conducting, and production. He has composed for over 50 videos, a dozen CDs, and 2 major motion pictures, selling over 75 million videos/DVDs and over 5 million CDs. In his years with Big Idea, Kurt has never wanted to “dumb-down” his music by considering it only for children. He has always challenged himself, with his education background, to create a rich palette of sounds for both kids and the discerning adult! You’ll hear it in a myriad of styles, each true to its roots – from Dixieland, blues, and polkas to hard-core classical, 70’s and emotional scores. From his tuba playing on the VeggieTales Theme Song to his co-writing of songs like The Hairbrush Song and His Cheeseburger, Kurt has left his mark on children’s entertainment.
