The challenge: Live to on-air in 16 hrs, with DSO’s New Year’s Concert.December 27, 2011
I’m excited to announce we’re recording the Delaware Symphony Orchestra LIVE at their New Year’s Eve Gala this Saturday, December 31st at the Wilmington Grand at 7:30 p.m. and turning it around overnight for a 2 p.m. broadcast on WRTI on NEW YEAR’S DAY, January 1st. (The countdown begins when the music stops around 10 p.m. That’s roughly 16 hrs to get it completed and on the air. No pressure!)
I hope you’ll follow along with me here as I update our pre-production progress, recording the dress rehearsal, and then the concert itself at 7:30 on New Year’s Eve. The VO script is now written for the broadcast, (hosted by WRTI’s Jack Moore) and Music Director/Conductor David Amadao has already sat down for an intermission interview at WRTI’s studios. (That’s already “In the can” and ready to go for the middle of the broadcast.)

I’ll be checking in again soon with more updates during the week, so stay tuned for what happens next….
