  1. Here is my brass quintet piece, Longing and Hope, which was premiered last night at the MIT Wind Ensemble's virtual concert: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiDEk794HWo
  2. Does anyone have more info on this variation of Summon the Heroes? NBC used it tonight to start the primetime broadcast.
  3. This is very upsetting news. I have tickets for the Saturday night concert. Like some of the other local folks posting here, I have seen him in concert several times, and met him afterward when he came out to meet fans -- but I still look forward to the concert every time. For those coming from abroad, I can't imagine...
  4. Can someone identify the music that plays at the very beginning of this clip, while Costas is still narrating? (the theme from 0:35 through 1:20) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooWMPuqcp7w Thanks! I think it was Gettysburg, but I wasn't paying attention. Sent from Tapatalk
  5. Here is my latest work, for the National Park Travelers Club 2014 convention preview: (the first minute features music from from the previous two previews -- you can find those on Youtube as well, and then there's new music until the end... and my fiance provides vocals from 2:19 through 2:47)
  6. No, I'm afraid that wasn't it... the piece almost had an Irish feel to it (and it wasn't Far and Away). Any other ideas? Thanks! I think it was Gettysburg, but I wasn't paying attention. Sent from Tapatalk
  7. I'd imagine this is an easy question for someone here -- what was the music that played on NBC during the Costas narration *before* the closing credits montage (with Dragonheart and Remember the Titans) last night?
  8. Yes, this was done with Edirol, thanks Do use edirol? The french horns sound like it. Good piece!
  9. Here is my latest work. I created the preview video slideshow, including an original soundtrack, for next year's National Park Travelers Club convention. Thanks for listening!
  10. I agree -- he used to meet with us indoors, near the interior stage door. I don't think he's done that since 2006, but given these people this year, hopefully he'll start that up again next year. It's also much more conducive for taking photos to be indoors.
  11. Yes, sure! Greetings. I can use the picture on my blog?. Andres Valverde (John Williams Composer Blog) JWC BLOG
  12. Well, he did come out about 45 minutes after the concert ended. Sadly, there were several people who didn't even go to the concert (wearing old t-shirts and ratty pants) with literally dozens of CD's bombarding Williams, who are then probably going to just sell them on eBay. He did sign many of them, and the security told them to leave, but they just went to a place Williams hadn't been yet... when he got there, he saw them again, got upset, and got into the BSO1 car and left. So no picture with him this year. Just the attached photo while he was signing autographs.
  13. Hi all, Here is my most recent uploaded composition, just under 5 minutes long: It wasn't written for any particular purpose. The final version was created with the Edirol Orchestral Synth. Comments, constructive critiques, compliments, etc, are welcome! Thanks, -Scott
  14. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2008-08/...ent_8990028.htm That's Tan Dun's theme. Anyone who's got to record it?
  15. Thanks! I'd like a recording, as well! It's very repetitive (at least what I've heard so far on TV), but I do like it. That's Tan Dun's theme. Anyone who's got to record it?
  16. Does anyone know what the music is that plays during the medal ceremonies, prior to the National Anthem?

  18. The Potter lasted 30-35 minutes, and it included a narration by Lynn Redgrave. The narration was between cues, not during them, and gave information about the next cue.
  19. There were about 15 of us who waited around after tonight's Pops concert. He came out the stage door about 45 minutes after the concert ended, talked with fans, signed things, and took photos. I had him sign the picture with him and me (my avatar), and he also signed over my shirt. He said "We look great in that picture" as he signed it! -Scott
  20. I bought my ticket for opening night, May 22nd. Perhaps I'll see some of you there! -Scott
  21. I hope this is appropriate to post here: This Saturday night, March 17, at 8pm in MIT's Kresge Auditorium (77 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge), I will be conducting the world premiere of a 9 minute movie soundtrack that I wrote, "Suite from an Imaginary Movie", performed by the MIT Wind Ensemble. Also on the program is the world premiere of Concerto for Tuba (by Kenneth Amis of the world famous Empire Brass... he is among the top tuba players in the world... and there will be a special encore of him performing a piece on tuba that is even difficult to play on piano!), and Concerto for Flute. The
  22. I haven't decided which day(s) I going to the concert(s) yet. But I'll probably go twice again. He is usually in a hurry on the way in, so the best bet is to wait around after the concert (an hour or more) for him to appear. He comes to the northeastern door on the inside of the hall. Most days he is too tired to take pictures / sign things. Some days he does though. If you are really lucky, and there aren't many people waiting, he will take you up to his changing room / office! -Scott
  23. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=hellgi The first result makes sense, and it should also lend credibility to his posts, about this and about CoS... I play the piano... but I certainly wasn't there as an instrumentalist.. let's say I have a good connection Hellgi = William Ross!!!!
