A CHANCE TO MEET & SEE HOWARD COMPOSE THE SWATH SCORE
On Saturday, February 11th, a Valentine Gala Weekend - To Ojai With Love will be held to benefit the Ojai Music Festival (June 7th - 10th). At the gala, patrons will have a wonderful opportunity to make donations and experience V.I.P. gift packages that will provide them with opportunities of a lifetime from private concerts to dinners.
One of the packages will include being able to meet James Newton Howard as he composes the score to SWATH! The package is valued at $3,500 and will provide the following experience:
James Newton Howard, eight-time Academy Award-nominated composer, invites you and a guest to join him at a major Hollywood scoring stage as he records his original musical score for the highly anticipated Universal Pictures film Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. Known for composing and scoring movies such as Pretty Woman, The Prince of Tides, Sixth Sense and Michael Clayton, Ojai resident Howard also toured with Elton John. You’ll be given the star treatment as you and your guest are ushered into the studio for a 3-hour orchestra recording session. Your fairytale day will also include a complimentary lunch for two at the studio commissary … and you’ll enjoy a special VIP tour of the studio lot. Enchanting!
*Available dates and times are subject to the film’s post-production schedule.
As indicated, you must be a patron in order to purchase the package. The level of donation, if any, in order to purchase the package you can find here. Fans with big pockets, here is your opportunity.
