Charlie Barnett to score "An Open Door" by Sonny Izon

An Open Door is a feature-length documentary on the uplifting story of how a small Asian nation was able to save over 1,300 Jews as they fled the pogroms of Nazi Germany. It is written, produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Noel M. Izon and co-produced by author Sharon Delmendo. This is the third film in his World War II trilogy Forgotten Stories.
This unique film will explore the rare confluence of the Pacific and European theaters. It juxtaposes momentous events in history such as the passage of the Nuremberg Laws and the inauguration of the Philippines as a Commonwealth of the United States.
An Open Door is the story of a deep friendship borne of common adversity and intense love for freedom. Together, Filipinos and Jews struggled, endured and ultimately prevailed.

Once again, Chaise Lounge packed the house at Chris’ Jazz Cafe in Philadelphia. Chris’ caters to a highly educated Jazz audience and when Marilyn sang her first note, jaws literally dropped. We hope to make this a regular gig and to add the World Cafe onto the tour by next time.

Minimum orchestra required: harp, strings, solo clarinet

Description: Five movements. A misty, romantic piece about going to a tiny carnival in a small town at night. The movements are based loosely on the experiences of the attractions at the carnival: Ferris Wheel, Shooting Gallery, etc. Ben Redwine plays this piece really well and would certainly be available to perform this again. (a shameless plug)

Minimum orchestra required: 2 fl(picc), 2 ob (EH), 2 cl, bsn, 3 trp, 4 hrn, 3 trb, tba, 2 perc, timp, harp, strings, solo viola

Description: I wrote this for Osman Kivrak, who is Turkish. And although each movement is named after a town in Turkey the music itself is more of a western tourist’s look at the sights and sounds of Turkey. A postcard, if you will. The middle movement is one of the prettiest pieces of music I have ever written.

Description: I have always wanted only two things in my film music career: 1. to write a Sweeping Western and 2. to score a pirate movie. This is the pirate movie… without the visuals. It is programmatic, although I have yet to determine how much of that information to share with the audience?
