Congratulations to everyone involved with this year’s Orchestral Reading Session! Special thanks to John Herberman for coordinating and conducting the session and Josh Tidsbury for engineering.
Following the recording session, SCGC members attended the masterclass on Monday night where they listened to each of the scores with picture, and heard feedback from clinicians Yuri Sazonoff, John Herberman, John Welsman, and the director of two of the scored cues – Cal Coons! The focus was on instrument choices, writing for acoustic instruments, and other aspects of orchestration, as well as specific points regarding scoring to picture.
The Orchestral Reading Session is presented with partners University of Toronto Music, the University of Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and The Canadian Film Centre
