EVCRT 213/214 — Advanced Orchestration
In this course, students apply their orchestration skills to large instrumental ensembles. Students learn the nuances of scoring for chamber orchestra and full orchestra, culminating in two reading projects. The first is a transcription for a sinfonia-sized chamber orchestra. The second is for full orchestra and includes an opportunity for original orchestral compositions (with instructor permission). Both projects are read and recorded by students of the Juilliard College Division. Students also focus throughout on the preparation and production of professional-quality scores and orchestral parts. This is a yearlong course; students may enter in either semester. Prerequisite: Orchestration (or equivalent) and familiarity with music notation software, such as Finale or Sibelius. Placement interview required.
