Scoring the 1925 Phantom of the Opera

For the last several months I’ve been diligently composing the score for a screening of the 1925 silent film Phantom of the Opera. The score will be played by a live 8 piece chamber orchestra. The screening will take place at the Kenworthy theater in downtown Moscow, ID on April 28. It’s been such an amazing experience writing the music for this thing. All in all it’s about 90 minutes of music! For a couple months, it completely took over my life – so much work! But I’m done with the writing now and rehearsals are coming along nicely. I’m very excited to see the whole thing in April!
