  1. On the Hollywood bowl event calendar, Dudamel is listed as conductor. No program though. Except that we know the concerto for trumpet will be performed. My gut feeling tells me there will be more Williams on this concert. It’s a trumpet summit after all. I decided to skip Tanglewood this year, and go there instead. It’ll be fun to hang out with other trumpet players, and listen to fantastic concerts.
  2. The spring pops season is available to view here http://bso.http.internapcdn.net/bso/images/groups/SPOPS20_Groups_Brochure.pdf It looks like no film night, but a SW concert in June. Not sure if it’s the whole season. Seems to not have been officially announced yet.
  3. Personally I would choose Film night.
  4. We performed HPSS last month, and it was all synths. Maybe they don’t always do it the same way.
  5. Totally agree. The mixing on this score is much better than the previous sequels. The orchestra sounds great, and it’s really showing the orchestration in a much better light. TFA was pretty bad on that aspect. TLJ was somewhat better.
  6. Sorry, I should have realized this. But I wasn't really concerned about the movie part...I actually don't even remember who that character is.
  7. Didn’t see it posted yet. https://variety.com/2019/music/production/john-williams-star-wars-rise-of-skywalker-1203446034/
  8. I have a feeling it’s going to be my favourite sequel trilogy score. Star wars movies are not what they used to be.
  9. He did come out last year after SW. I guess it’s definitely possible he would do it again.
  10. They did SW last summer, I was there. But as much as ESB is the best score of all time, I’m thinking of doing Film night this time. Long drive for me...
  11. My guess is if his health allows it, he will conduct the easy ones. It’s not like this orchestra needs much conducting anyway.
  12. I didn’t see a topic yet, so here it is. I just got an email with the new Tanglewood season. They list Tanglewood on Parade on July 28, with Williams, Andriss Nelson and Thomas Wilkins as conductors. Then it’s Film night on August 15th, with Williams hosting and Keith Lockhart conducting. Then Empire Strikes Back live on Aug 21. With Lockhart conducting. If I go, I’m thinking Film night, for probably a SW festival.
  13. The reception was phenomenal. It was quite interesting as a musician to perform while the audience reacts to the on screen action. A lot of fun. The screen was above and behind the orchestra, and only used on the 2nd rehearsal. It’s a well oiled machine for sure. Everything went super smoothly. the film and music tracks were both mixed and sent through speakers. From what I’ve heard, it seemed it was well balanced and the sound quality was good. It was in a big hockey arena. Overall it was a lot of fun, the conductor was great, he was very precise and knew the score incredibly well. I would have liked just one more rehearsal....playing Quidditch only once through before the performance was a little nerve wracking... Hopefully we get to do more in the future.
  14. As an orchestra musician, I absolutely can’t imagine playing some of the transitions that those edits have created. Some of them make no musical sense at all. I don’t think we’ll ever see those performed live.
  15. For people in eastern Canada or US. I’m looking forward to performing it.
  16. Love Sibelius 2. Performing it in October. Definitely some voicing and harmony resemblances between Williams and Sibelius. There are most certainly worst composers to be influenced by out there.
  17. Haha. I guess I should have read your post first...I posted a photo and video in the original thread. In any case. A very nice end to a great evening.
  18. I was at Tanglewood yesterday to see SW LTP. We had a nice surprise encore... Grounds are nice. 20190816_223722.mp4
