To excite and introduce a Concert Season like no other.
To create an engaging moving video which ignites the audience members to stand up out of their seats and run to purchase tickets. To have them at the edge of their seats for the release of the centennial season and honor Maestro Jerry Lances 40 years being the masterful conductor of the Rochester Symphony Orchestra.
Film and photo the orchestra during a live dress rehearsal which later and unexpectedly turned into the concert. Time the footage and exert to complement Beethoven’s 9th when in reality they were playing Brahms Requiem. Two dynamically different musical pieces composed nearly 43+ years apart.

THE HUMOR AND THE FACTS:
Full disclosure everything about this project was perfectly timed. From the initial meeting, two nights of recording/shooting during a live concert to the timed edit. (In the midst of coordinating the details participating at a major national Trade Show, National Association of Broadcasters N.A.B. )
A little fact about me...What you didn't know was my music background came in full circle when I asked to read the score, borrowed from the Timpanist, to time the shot of french horns on the 4th movement. Being a former Interlochen Center for the Arts Camp student and Drake University Grad came in awfully handy-the stage manager was caught quite off guard.
Here's to #bthvn 9th and oh boy-let's go!
All the best and see you for the next project.
