National Film Score Day - 2022-04-03
What is National Film Score Day?
In April 1942, Miklos Rozsa composed a score for the movie The Jungle Book. The year before, in 1943, the film's orchestral score was released as a 78-rpm recording with narration by Sabu, the film's star. The soundtrack became the first commercial recording of music from a Hollywood movie. Film scores and the composers who create them! As a life-long lover of movie music, I wanted to create a special day to celebrate the work of composers for film. I love orchestral scores, and I think it's important to honor the composers as well as the music they create. Film scores give movies their heart and soul, and I think it's cool that we can celebrate these works of art on a special day. It's the 50th anniversary of the inception of the motion picture soundtrack. I wanted to honor those composers whose work has brought us so much joy over the years. Film composers deserve a day just as much as directors and actors do. So for their hard work and dedication, I'm creating a new holiday: National Film Score Day. It's a holiday that will celebrate the works of John Williams, Ennio Morricone, Miklós Rózsa, Michael Giacchino, Rachel Portman, Elmer Bernstein, Howard Shore, Bernard Herrmann, Hans Zimmer, Jerry Goldsmith, Lolita Ritmanis, John Barry, James Horner, Max Steiner and Shirley Walker

History of National Film Score Day
National Film Score Day was the brainchild of Jeffrey D. Kern, a popular radio show host. His idea was to create a day dedicated to bringing attention to all things related to film scores, including live concerts and the world's most celebrated composers.
