  1. Hello, The date is Sept 24th, coming up soon! I know that John is making a few orchestra revisions but I don't think it's anything major. At least I don't think, I'll find out soon when I get the parts. Thanks, Tom
  2. Hi all! This is Tom Hooten. Thanks for sharing on the project! For those upset that the $50 is a lot for a CD, the premise is more as a tax deductible donation to help fund the project, and the signed CD is more of a free "thank you," along with the digital download and thank you note (the previous level rewards). I hope that makes sense. About timing, I actually have 2 large donors that are funding enough of the project to hire the musicians and book the studio. The whole project costs about $100k! This money being raised here is mostly for the post-production costs (editing it all together, printing CD's, making it digital, among other fees that add up). So we are set for the recording session with the previous donors, but this helps to finish the project! Just to answer some questions. I hope that makes sense. Thanks again for all of your support! Best, Tom Hooten
  3. Hi all! I wanted to share a project that I"m doing very soon. You can read more about it on the kickstarter page, but I'm recording John's Trumpet Concerto with a full orchestra, with John himself conducting! I've raised a majority of the funding for the full orchestra and recording fees, but am doing this campaign to raise the remaining gap. If any are interested in contributing or sharing, there are rewards on the page and I'd appreciate you all for helping to make this a reality!! Thanks for reading! Best, Tom Hooten, Principal Trumpet of the Los Angeles Philharmonic https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/williamshootencd/john-williams-and-thomas-hooten-recording-project?ref=user_menu
