When you hear a Broadway musical with a full orchestra that sound and experience can be so powerful that it can overwhelm you. It’s the job of the orchestrator to create that rich and evocative Broadway sound by taking the melody created by a composer and transforming it into parts for every instrument in the pit. Learn about the process of creating and notating music and practice creating your own orchestrations. Enjoy this opportunity to discuss the craft, art, and business of orchestrating.
Experience will include:
- Learning about the orchestration process
- Discovering how to pursue a career in orchestration
- Finding out how to listen to music differently in order to appreciate orchestrations
- Q&A with a musical theater orchestrator
