    One of the great ideas we kicked around in the first EB was to get a local orchestra to play Star Wars music in an informal venue like a mall or a park. Puede rin siguro music ni John Williams. Anybody connected to a local orchestra like the PPO or the MPO or even a university orchestra like UST? It would be really great if we could put on such a concert...

    Star Wars music always makes for great orchestra listening. :) Siguro we can also have a portion there na tribute to John Williams and his other movie soundtrack creations. Excited na talaga ako dito. Thanks to Ian for the suggestion.

    Wouldn't it be amazing if maybe the UP Singing Ambassadors can SING "Duel of the Fates". ;)

    Will ask around. Some people from my other groups may have connections.

    Maybe for a future big convention..especially come 2005. But we have three spoiler-laden years to come anyway.

    this is a very good idea. thing is the first question they'd probably ask you is if you have a song sheet (is that what they call em?) its pretty hard to play SW/John Williams without those.

    PPO and MPO have done it a countless number of times already. I bet they already have copies of those.

    I'll ask my friend who's an associate professor/conductor/pianist with the UP College of Music for his thoughts on this matter.

    yehey!!! i hope this thing pushes through. :D maybe we should write PPO or MPO...who has the contact? At least we'll know the possibilities-- like if they have the music sheets, or how much they charge, or what other arrangements we can do with them -- like co-producing the show with whoever.

    :D

    Ulan and I were talking about this event a few hours ago while downloading the Metallica cover of the Imperial March. ;) One idea we came up with in connection with this is to also conduct some sort of "Battle of the Bands"... but they have to play SW music only. Then whoever wins the contest can join the orchestra during the main concert. :)

    Anyhoo, just send in more of your ideas, and if someone has contacts, please, speak up. Thanks.
