ORB goes Hollywood!

Gayle and Phil Neuman recorded music on ancient instruments including kithara and kroupezon for the Paramount/MGM movie “Ben-Hur.”  Stream it and check out the credits!

Members of the Oregon Renaissance Band (Daphne Clifton, Lori Fitch, Gayle and Phil Neuman) appear as themselves in the movie “Buddymoon” directed by Alex Simmons, starring David Giuntolli (A Million Little Things, Grimm) and Flula Borg.  The group appears somewhat unexpectedly in the ‘wilds’ of Mt. Hood playing two pieces by Anthony Holborne on recorders.  The film, which also stars Claire Coffee, Jeanne Syquia, and Brian T. Finney, is distributed by Orion, and is available on Itunes and elsewhere.

The Neumans’ ancient Greek music can be heard on “Music and Emotion through Time”, a TED Talk by Michael Tilson Thomas.
