On Saturday, September 26, 2020, from 12 pm to 3 pm PST, ASMAC (American Society of Music Arrangers & Composers) will present a webinar celebrating the career of two-time Academy Award-winning composer James Horner who wrote some of the most iconic scores of the past 30 years including Star Trek II and III, Titanic, Braveheart, Avatar, Field of Dreams, Cocoon, Willow and dozens of other well-known titles. Trained as a classical pianist and composer, Mr. Horner made an immediate impression with his unique melodic orchestration and spotting skills, which always seemed to capture the heart of every film he scored. He also penned hit songs including Céline Dion’s chart-topper, “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic and the Linda Rondstadt/James Ingram hit, “Somewhere Out There” from An American Tail. The panel will reunite Horner’s music team and will include Jim Henrikson and Joe E. Rand (music editors), synthesist and arranger Simon Franglen, orchestrators JAC Redford and Steve Bramson and will feature special guest Sara Horner. Jean-baptiste Martin (James Horner Film Music Association). The event will be moderated by Dan Redfeld and Tim Rodier.
