As someone who has many, many years of orchestral training in brass, I must state...raw, a bit unpolished, a school for jazz where they are performing very complex classical...not bad at all!There was a trumpet player in there who was severely sharp (come on, people...tune prior to warm up then re-tune? Please?) but still nailed the tempo and meter nicely. They should have opted for baritone over trombone, and the entire brass section was lacking in numbers...but still, considering the complexity of the music itself, and sounding as though it may have been hand-transposed from a dedicated fan (only because a few of the notes were off in the strings ensemble), this was a very remarkable work and not a minor undertaking at all!/salute

I love that I know exactly what you're talking about. It would be a dream come true to play in a film/game music recording orchestra. Most of the time the music written to go behind an epic battle or love scene can be some of the most heartwrenching scores I ever hear.I agree there were moments that made me raise my eyebrows a bit, but benefit of the doubt should definitely be given.They're not in a school for classical performance, they're all volunteers and the numbers in that room are clearly not as many as what blizz would use for their recordings. Any mistakes become more obvious in a smaller group (like with raiding :P) so kudos to everyone involved in this group. I am insanely jealous.

I'm guessing with a student-run orchestra you gotta bring the player not the instrument. ;) I just liked that it was all Horde & Lich King music, none of that sappy Alliance crud.
