If you need an Orchestra Contractor in Los Angeles, look no further. I have over 28 years of experience contracting musicians and orchestras for all types of musical situations for major recording sessions to live dates. Contrary to popular belief, there is much more to musician contracting than just picking up the telephone and booking the players.
I specialize in full project management from start to finish in order to allow you, the composer to do what you do, write the music.
My main goal as a Los Angeles Orchestra contractor is to keep the players and the music playing in Los Angeles. My Angel City Studio Orchestra has been very busy recently with many projects for Warner Brothers and their animation department. I also contracted the players for the "Need for Speed" motion picture for Dreamworks. I am commmited to keeping
recording in Los Angeles and continually work hard on this front. I also contract musicians for the UCLA Extension Film Scoring program and love to see the next generation of film composers build their careers. I book all types of music and all musical situations.
Once I get information on what instrumentation you're writing for I can then generate an Excel budget within your scope for the specific project.
No project is either too big nor too small...there are also many creative lower budget recording scales in place now to keep you recording in LA, and this is better than you having to go out of town or use the internet to record elsewhere. My main goal is to keep the money in LA! I frequently book the studio, the engineer, the orchestration and copying team along with hiring the musicians. At the end of the whole process, I get everyone paid in a timely manner and follow up on all aspects.

* Special note to contractors I still play trumpet as a sideman every week for other contractors or employers. Please dont let the fact that I also contract deter you in calling me to play great trumpet for you!
