Virtual Event

Composer and arranger Nan Schwartz brings her acclaimed talent for creating lush harmonic landscapes and her experience as a pioneer on the Hollywood music scene to the University of Oregon for a virtual spring residency which will include a masterclass on the art of arranging, a composing workshop, a film scoring session, rehearsals of her work, and discussions on carving out a career in the music industry. 

This two-part masterclass will be a signature event for students of orchestration and arranging in both the classical and the jazz idioms.  Ms. Schwartz will take students through several pieces of her own work and of those that have inspired her, sharing wisdom on how to write, what makes for a successful piece, and what to avoid.  All registrants will receive masterclass materials.  Register here!
