Los Angeles-based clarinetist Donald Foster sheds a little light on the mysterious world of Hollywood film studio orchestras . . .

Daniel Kepl interviews Donald Foster, Principal Clarinet of the Pasadena Symphony and Santa Barbara Symphony, on the eve of his performance of the Clarinet Concerto by Aaron Copland with the Santa Barbara Symphony, Nir Kabaretti conducting. Performances are Saturday, April 12 (8pm) and Sunday, April 13 (3pm) at the Granada Theatre in Santa Barbara.

Be sure to watch the one-and-only take video of the NBC Nightly News theme, John Williams conducting. Foster explains in the interview that John Williams is one of his “accounts.” Be sure to read the Foster interview in CASA Magazine April 11-20. That issue will also have my reviews of State Street Ballet‘s performance of choreographer William Soleau’s Carmen, and  the Westmont College men’s and women’s choirs.
