I am about to orchestrate the 22 songs in my upcoming musical Rivertown to debut on October, 2009.
It will include:
violin 1 & 2
To me it looks funny the way Finale is formatting the score for me using the wizard on my Mac Pro.
I found a few scores online to take a peek at, but I am wondering what is considered the "standard" way of setting up a score for the conductor of the pit orchestra. Are all vocals in that score as well?
I just want to start out right and not have to go back and redo scores.
I know there are people here who have done this or know.
It's funny how you take for granted things until YOU have to create a score yourself (or some other task), then everything is not so obvious.
Thanks for any guidance you can give this orchestrating novice.
If anyone has a Finale file - even just a page or two - that I could have, that would be wonderful.
Also what size paper would be best?
