ABOUT THE $99 ORCHESTRA
Our goal is to get the $99 Orchestra on it's feet with a kickstarter boost! We want to make $99 orchestral recording sessions for education and professional purposes a constant reality - That's our real goal, so if we pass the $40,000 milestone, we don't stop there. The more support we have, the more constant we can make this great new service available and more upgrades and options will be available for you. For this project to become reality we need everyone's support!

17 Strings (5,4,3,4,1)
Decca tree and section mics (this means you will have the general room sound and each individual instrument section separated in different tracks) The orchestra will be all in the same room, so the separation is not to an absolute degree. We will record everything at the 48,000Hz standard sample rate.
Printed Click track is available for 1h, 3h, 6h and 12h sessions. If you got a smaller session, click track is available, but you will need to choose one tempo from beginning to end. e.g.: 120BPM
FROM YOUR MIND TO THE SCORING STAGE!
AUDIO EXAMPLE - $99 ORCHESTRA
Here is an example of an orchestral reading by our orchestra. Check out more music a our website www.99dollarorchestra.com
Mendelssohn had an orchestra for himself. Now you can too, with the perks of not having to live in the past! Help support the $99 Orchestra Kickstarter campaign by pledging and we will give you a recording session so you can record your music!
If you don't know music, but you play a musical instrument or sing, you can submit an audio recording of yourself playing and we will transcribe it into an orchestral piece and record it. That's reward #3.
A big thank you to Matt McLean from YCWI and to Prof. Alex Ruthmann from the Music Education / Music Technology Dept. at New York University/Steinhardt for their outstanding support.
Risks and challenges
Our project has the support of the WESO Orchestra www.wesorchestra.com, which Andre Miranda leads. All of the intricacies of getting this project running will be taken care by professionals, starting by score submission and advisement by Andre Miranda. Please visit Andre's Bio in the Bio section where links about the WESO are included. A workshop in New York or Skype will be available for those who want advisement on how to make the most out of their scores. Our partnership with the YCWI in New York also ensures that the educational side of the project is monitored.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
