Philly Day 2-3: Putting it Together

Today and tomorrow, the rest of the Melos Philly crew will be arriving to lend a hand and put final preparations in place for the recording sessions and the Friday concert. For the last few days, though, our skeleton crew of Dan, David, Ryan and Jason has been running the show. Tuesday was another rehearsal day, getting the rest of the program in working order for the recording sessions, which begin today! Here are a few action shots of the rehearsals:

Wednesday was a free day, and the composers engaged in a composer’s favorite pastime:

Thanks for the hospitality, Fado Irish Pub!

Today we’re back to the grind, starting with a lecture/workshop by some of the composers at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, Dan’s alma mater! And in case you’ve forgotten (we haven’t), today is the first (and hopefully only!) day for recording our Melos 2012 CD. If you were one of our extremely generous Fractured Atlas donors, you may have chosen the CD as an incentive; we’ll have it on its way to you as soon as it’s ready! If not, never fear – it will be for sale shortly after it goes to press! Check back to the Melos blog often for more info.

We’re getting excited for tomorrow’s concert. Ensemble39 is sounding amazing, and with every composer that lands in Philly the anticipation gets a bit higher! We’ll have more stories of the Melos Philly preparations in the coming days; check the blog tomorrow morning for some highlights from today’s recording session, lecture, and more.
