North Carolina Film Orchestra Expands State Film Production Resources

NCFilmOrchestraThe newest symphony orchestra in North Carolina is aimed at supporting the growth of the State’s movie and television industry. The Raleigh-based North Carolina Film Orchestra is intended to fill the gap of live recording needs of filmscore composers and producers for the independent film industry. Beginning with semi-professional community players, the intent is to begin commercial recording of selected filmscore music for these studios, in place of the synthesized filmscore tracks on which they have historically been dependent.

Currently the Orchestra’s repertoire includes four filmscore pieces, including a work by composer Julian Smyth- music graduate of Nottingham University, and former Orchestra Manager for the Ulster Orchestra, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra; his past collaborators include John Williams and James Horner.

In addition to industry work, the Orchestra also plans to present public performances; its debut Holiday Concert was presented in December 2016.

The Orchestra’s member roster consists of 30 musicians, many of whom are music educators or have performance degrees. Local musicians who are at or approaching semi-professional playing level on either a strings instrument or double reeds and would like to be considered for a spot as a performing member, should contact Anthony Dowling, or Patricia Pearce for further information.

Open studio space

Liberty Warehouse has moved again … and again the move has allowed the collective to expand the resources they offer the Triangle arts community.  “With the move to our new, larger location we have been able to open a glass studio and offer classes at varying levels of skill, which is something we did not have the ability to provide in our prior spot. And with the larger footprint, we have more studio space available to offer artists.” say Board President, Diane Amato.

Liberty Arts offers classes in welding, glass blowing, ceramics, plasma cutting, letterpress and wood turning. Along with those classes, they have welding machines and glass blowing time available to rent by the hour. And for artists who are looking for a home, they still have a few studio spaces left.

Triangle ArtWorks Director Elected to AFTA Private Sector Council

We are thrilled to announce that our Executive Director, Beth Yerxa, has been elected to the Americans for the Arts (AFTA) Private Sector Council. AFTA is the leading organization for advancing the arts and arts education in America and Private Sector Council members advise Americans for the Arts’ staff on developing programs and services that will build a deeper connection to the field and the network membership. As part of the Private Sector Council, Yerxa will also work with fellow arts leaders to develop and implement private-sector advocacy programs and serve as leaders to other local arts agencies seeking to connect with the private sector.

This position also provides Triangle ArtWorks a unique opportunity to deepen relationships we already have with other arts leaders around the Country and not only keep up with, but be a part of affecting changing trends in the arts around the country.  This knowledge and access will help Yerxa and Triangle ArtWorks advise Triangle arts leaders, as well as serve the Triangle arts community better. Directors of arts organizations from Miami/Dade, Nashville, Philadelphia, San Francisco and many other cities and towns are represented on the Council.

In January, Yerxa participated in her first Private Sector meeting, where she was briefed on changing trends in arts, such as the CREATE Act.  She also provided input into the discussion about the changing field of arts support and the role of the arts and culture segment in the larger “creative economy” and tp talk about the work that Triangle ArtWorks is doing to support this business segment here in the Triangle.
