Noted musician to conduct CCC orchestra

Emmy-nominated composer Ron Jones will conduct the Clackamas Community College wind ensemble, jazz band, string ensemble and choir, combined to form a 60-piece studio orchestra.

by: SUBMITTED  - Ron JonesThe student orchestra will record Jones’ cues from recent episodes of the popular television series “Family Guy” from noon to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 28, in Oregon City college’s Niemeyer Center. His composition work includes episodes of “American Dad,” “Duck Tales” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” His career of composing movie scores, television soundtracks, cartoon music and computer-game sounds started at CCC.

Visitors will be able to observe from the orchestral tracking room and recording studio control room during the recording process. All four of CCC’s tracking rooms will be used simultaneously.

“This will be a rare opportunity for everyone to see how film, game and television-series scores are created and recorded with a live studio orchestra,” said Brian Rose, CCC Music Department chairman and music-technology director.

This event is free to the public. A question-and-answer period with Ron Jones will follow the recording session.
