“Opening Night” recording session

“Opening Night” recording session

On November 21, David led 11 members of the Asia America Youth Orchestra in the recording of the score to “Opening Night.” A documentary by acclaimed film and television producer, Dan Guntzelman, “Opening Night” follows a local theater troupe, The Kentwood Players, from the inception of “Lil’ Abner” to its completion. David Benoit composed, orchestrated, and conducted the recording session with these talented young musicians, ranging in age from 13-17. It was an unforgettable experience for the kids (first time in a recording studio recording music to a professional feature film) as well as for David.

Pictures from the session are below.
