The mock-up orchestra recordings are ready!

August 12, 2020

After 2 months of very intense work, we are happy to announce we have finished recording the mock-up orchestra for this project!! Thank you for your support.


All instruments were recorded individually with a MIDI keyboard, in a software called Logic Pro. Time signatures, tempo changes, and dynamics had to be adjusted manually for each instrument. 


Now we are ready to record the singers individually. They will be recording their part listening to the mock-up orchestra. Then, we will put together all the singers' recordings with the mock-orchestra. The final step will be recording the CSUN Symphony orchestra, one instrumentalist at a time, and add it to the mock-up orchestra and singers. 


Thank you for your support of CSUN Opera! Please spread the word and help us reach our goal of 10K. We have 18 days left!
