Tuesday was a really fun day. We recorded the theme song!
We were were joined by the lovely young composer, Daizha, who wrote the song and who just happens to be 9 years old. Hanry Darragh’s lent his amazing musical artistry and composition skills and helped sculpt this diamond of a song into an incredible arrangement of musicians at Sugarhill Recording Studio.
Thank you to the talented musicians and the staff at Sugarhill Recording Studio.. Here are some photos from Tuesday’s session:
This has been an amazing 1st week of rehearsals. The kids are so smart, interesting, talented and genuinely kind. The parents are supportive. And, we have a dedicated team of production assistants who have been tremendous in the rehearsal process. We’re blessed.
We did have a nice surprise this week. There was this girl who didn’t make it into the cast of the show, but she got so inspired that she wrote a song for the TV show anyway! The song is so good, we’re using it. We record at Sugarhill Recording Studios next Tuesday. Here is a photo of us learning the song with the composer/lyricist on the right.
10 days til filming begins!
