Sometimes working on a project for your own enjoyment can get you places. When I learned Severance Hall was going to hold a tribute show to John Williams presented by the Cleveland Pops I thought "That is awesome and I am going!"I LOVE going to the movies and I have nothing but respect to the people who compose the music for the films we adore. Would Star Wars be the same without The Imperial March? Would Jaws be as scary without it's main theme? I Don't think so. Anyway, I made this video and presented it to the Cleveland Pops hoping they might like it. They not only liked it, they gave me 3 free tickets to the show, a free pass to go back stage to meet the conductor and musicians, and they even asked me to do further work for them in the future. Not bad, I'd say.
