The Orchestra Unsung Heroes
Celebrities and professional working musicians all achieve some level of recognition. Whether winning the Grammy’s or a local following within the club, event and restaurant circuit. Let us not forget Orchestra members. First the conductor takes credit for the orchestra Boston Pop’s and New York Philharmonic for example. Celebrities receive recognition for their  their live appearance, Let’s focus on the arrangers. They are responsible for transposing each instrument and scoring the arrangements for each section. With a full orchestra this can mean hours of labor intensive work arranging and scoring. It’s a combination of doing it manually and using software sequencing programs.  Many play multiple instruments and deserve an industry award. Then there are individual member’s trumpets, saxophones, clarinetist, violinist, percussionist, backup singers and the like. Let’s follow the sequence leading up to an orchestra accompanying a theater production. The live performance has to be chosen whether to go with a classic or take the chance on a newly written play. Next the arrangers and writers have to create music that fits the mood of each segment of the play. This can vary from entire scenes to each individual line. It’s not like writing a pop tune. Then there’s hours of rehearsal. In the world of stage productions there’s no room for error, unlike jazz and rock concerts where creativity in an asset. As for compensation the municipality where the orchestra resides, allocates the budget for the arts. This makes them subject to budget cuts, because that’s how they’re salaries are determined. The average pay is $30’000 to $45’000 annually. Job openings are rare, qualifications are high, but once hired they have a high degree of job security.
