First Day of Scoring in Nashville

Dan Nashville (2009)

I woke up before the alarm went off at 6:30, but finally got up around then. Met up with Phil and Justin for the Continental Breakfast down in the hotel lobby at 7:15am (I had a small sampling of grits – I think that’s all I need!), and Penka joined us a little after that.  Then we drove over to the Ocean Way Nashville studios.  I’m attending the recording session for Justin’s score to a walkthrough exhibit on Admiral Nimitz, for the newly renovated National Museum of the Pacific War, in Fredericksburg, TX, which opens on December 7th later this year.  A 48-piece string and brass ensemble is being used, and after a small adjustment period, the session started going very smoothly – lots of progress was made before lunch.  The afternoon is so far going smoothly, and we’re on track to finish by 4pm.  Tomorrow is just strings in the morning, and then choir in the afternoon.   The hotel apparently has a “Complimentary Happy Hour” at 5:30 – full open bar!  And I think we’re going to Jack’s BarBQue for dinner tonight – double-awesome!
