The Return of Ron Jones

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Academy of Scoring Arts is thrilled to welcome founder Ron Jones back on a visit to Los Angeles for an open conversation about music, life, and his current favorite sample libraries and plugins. Well, maybe not the latter, but definitely a lot of the former!

Ron will fill us in on what he’s been up to since moving to beautiful rural Washington State, and what it’s been like composing without the pressures of airdate schedules and crazy executives giving conflicting feedback.

He has also generously offered to answer any questions that you may have! Please email your questions ahead of time to [email protected].

In addition, we are rebooting our long dormant Adventures in Listening segment of our events with a bang! We will be joined by saxophonist Doug Webb, as well as John Mitchell and his woodwind quintet (Quinn Johnson on Piano, Bob Crosby Clarinet, Laura Osborne Flute, Phill Feather Oboe, John Mitchell Bassoon, Suzette Moriarty French Horn) to begin the morning inspired by the live performances of these wonderful musicians in the beautiful natural acoustics of the First Baptist Church of Glendale. A special thanks to Ron for the idea, and for inviting these wonderful musicians to join us.

You won’t want to miss this event! If you attended ASA events back in the days Ron ran the Ravel Study Group, you already know that. If you have yet to experience his presence and profundity in person, this is your chance to do so!

As always, a light breakfast and coffee will be served, and the event will be followed by lunch, giving us the chance to socialize, meet new friends, and catch up with old ones.

We will also be live-streaming this event! We do want to give our community around the world the chance to be a part of this event in real time. If you are in the LA area, however, I invite you to take advantage of the opportunity to be with us in person to hear our guest players move molecules through physical space and be inspired directly, as well as partake in our longstanding Spaghettios tradition. (Don’t worry…we will not be serving actual Spaghettios!)

In the meantime, feel free to get a preview of what’s in store for you with Ron’s video series The Composer’s Journey!
