Sore one for the Music

A great soundtrack can make an OK movie or television show seem to be far better. A wonderful movie score or television theme can become forever memorable. The art of building suspense and drama, humor or romance through the use of musical scoring is an art form and will be the focus of the next Rudman Institute for Entertainment Industry Studies' event. These Grammy and Emmy award winning composers will explore how music makes the movie. This event, presented by the Rudman Institute for Entertainment Industry Studies, will take place on Tuesday, March 4th at 7:30 PM in Stein Auditorium and is free and open to the public.

Our speakers include Grammy winning composer Steve Horowitz who wrote the music for Morgan Spurlock's Supersize Me and currently scores numerous animation sequences for Nickelodeon, Emmy award winning Music Industry Professor Jim Klein, and the prolific composer and Westphal faculty member John Avarese, who has composed for the NFL Today and United Airlines.
