Meet the VCS student composers of THE LOST WORLD -- World Premiere

Pictured above -- Part of the composition team for THE LOST WORLD!

The best action dinosaur movie was made in 1925. Who Knew??

Well, our VCS students did. They've just composed a complete original orchestral score for the one-hour-forty-minute feature film to be performed LIVE at Brenden Theatres August 13, 14, & 15 at 7:00 pm by our own VCS Radio Symphony!

The kids finished the complete film score composition requiring 43 separate cues! They completed the orchestrations in just over six weeks - not bad for kids :) This is the kind of stuff usually done by professionals such as John Williams! For kids, this is quite an undertaking, but they've had a lot of experience doing world-class projects! This is the VCS Radio Conservatory's 23rd historic musical score project ranging from researched restorations to full original compositions.

Daily orchestra rehearsals for the Lost World, ahead of the compositions, started in mid-June. They'll be working on logistics and putting in the last touches before the run-through rehearsal on August 13th in the morning at the movie theater. 

Of course, you can't have a proper action dino movie score without special sound effects!

Farewell to seniors!

I don't have allergies, but for some reason, my eyes always seem to get a bit red and watery around May. Maybe it's not allergies. Could it be that this is the month my senior students graduate? Could it be the fact that they were my students since they were 3rd graders ten years ago?
