Only yesterday we were discussing film scores, so here's a nice tag to an event at OSU's School of Music.
OSU alum Ladd McIntosh will conduct the OSU Jazz Ensemble at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 31 at Browning Amphitheatre near Mirror Lake. A composer, arranger and consuctor, McIntish is also a well-known orchestrator of music for film scores -- including scores by many of the composers we talked about in our earlier entry. Films McIntosh has orchestrated include "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Pearl Harbor," the "Shrek" films, "Speed," "The Lion King" and "Home Alone." The previous link also includes a tidy summation of what film orchestration entails.
McIntosh is also a respected jazz bandleader, composer and educator. The OSU concert is free and open to the public. Rain site is Weigel Hall. Call (614) 292-0789.
