    A Pat on my own Back - Composition selected for...

    I recently submitted an orchestral compositon to ERM Media in a call for scores. My score, Nightwinds, was 1 of 5 selected out of over 400 scores to be on the 8th CD of their Masterworks of the New Era recording project.

    I did a complete rendering of the piece this past November using GPO and submitted to a "Composers Showcase" contest in Colorado. Nightwinds was one of two selected for performance in the 2005-2006 concert series.

    I wanted to submit Nightwinds in the GPO contest, but it is 12:30 long and I couldn't figure where to cut it down in time.

    Thanks to GPO, I was able to produce a very good recording to present with my score. Thanks Gary for bringing this capability to us composers that don't have the big bucks!

    EMR Media produces CD's of new works. They record in Kiev with the Kiev Philharmonic and the CD I heard is fantastic. Very clean recording and playing by the orchestra.

    Many congratulations ChoralBoss,
    and welcome to board.
    Even if my music has never been selected neither for film scoring nor for somethingelse, I think GPO is a great thing for all Musicians, starting from an amateur (like me) to professionist (as many members here and you).
    If you look at its quality/price ratio, there is no other libraries.
    Also I have to thanks Gary Garritan for what he has done for us.
    (and we don't forget the new libraries that will be lunched from Gary -
    GPO advanced - Solo Stradivari - Jazz & Big Band Collection)

    I hope to hear you music very soon. I think it doesn't matter the duration.

    If you ask to Mr.Gary he will know what to do.
    So a lot of congratulation again and best of luck for your career,
    just a wonderful world this....GPO world...
    best Roberto

    Congratulations, Ron!

    It's great to hear stories like this -- not only because "one of our own done good"... but also because it speaks to just how valuable and effective a composers' tool GPO is.

    Is that piece posted anywhere, Ron? Would love to hear it.

    Congratulations Ron:

    I'm with the rest of the group that wants to hear the GPO version of your award-winning composition. Post when you can.

    I'm sure you feel like the rest of us that all the hard work that goes into producing some really good music is really worth the effort.

    Congratulations, Ron!

    Now your avitar is all dressed up... and has someplace important to go!

    Like many of us here, I'd be interested to hear and compare the GPO version and the live recording.

    Best wishes for your continued success!
