ORB goes Hollywood!

Gayle and Phil Neuman recorded music on ancient instruments including kithara and kroupezon for the Paramount/MGM movie “Ben Hur,” which premiered in 2016.  Check out the credits!

Members of the Oregon Renaissance Band (Daphne Clifton, Lori Fitch, Gayle and Phil Neuman) appear in the recent movie “Buddymoon” directed by Alex Simmons, starring David Giuntolli (Grimm) and Flula Borg.  The group appears somewhat unexpectedly in the ‘wilds’ of Mt. Hood playing 2 pieces by Anthony Holborne on recorders.  It premiered in July of 2016.  The film, which also stars Claire Coffee, Jeanne Syquia, and Brian T. Finney, is distributed by Orion, and is available on Itunes.
