    Chipping in for a real orchestra?

    Is anyone here interested in doing this and splitting the costs?

    http://www.symphonicworkshops.com/recfest2006.htm

    They require 2 hours of booking time.

    If I had 3 participants to join me we could split the cost 4 ways and each record a 7 minute piece. $2000 is out of my range, but $500 would be doable, and it would be worth it to have a recording of my music.

    Jesse,
    I've had experience with Symphonic Workshops in the past and had a good experience. They have been putting on these workshops and recording fests for many years.
    Good luck and I hope you find others to join you.

    Wow, thanks for pointing this out for me!

    Didn't know that this would be possible, that is to book symphonic orchestra online. And for a very low price too!

    Unfortunatly, my budget is limited now but I'll put some extra for this in next years budget.
    Sincerely,

    How about two songs lasting a total of 5 to 5-1/2 minutes?

    I've never used this service but this might be another viable option

    I've posted it in other threads but this seems a more relevant thread.

    Hope it helps.

    I may be interested, depending on the timing (deadlines for submission), and cost. Check your Private Messages.

    I have heard good things about them and I considered using them a few years ago.

    Of course you could always count yourself in for a 3.5 minute piece at $250 if 500 is too much. If I get enough responses (up to $2000) then we can all record.

    Believe me, I am strapped for cash too, but sooner or later, I have to get something else recorded for real. College orchestras have been too busy and I've used this service before.

    As for stringsilk, I'll probably work with them too, but the Symphonics Workshop Fest is all sections, not just strings.

    "Recording 7 minutes in 30 is going to be hard - I would have thought that around 5 mins per hour was more normal?"

    They did this with that time ratio. They're fast. They have good sight reading skills.
