Emmy-nominated Jones to lead CCC music groups

See 'Family Guy' composer in action


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Emmy-nominee Ron Jones will lead the music groups at Clackamas Community College in a special program May 28.

Emmy-nominated composer Ron Jones will conduct the Clackamas Community College wind ensemble, jazz band, string ensemble and choir, combined to form a studio orchestra from noon to 4 p.m. May 28.

The student orchestra will be recording Jones’ cues from recent episodes of the popular television series “Family Guy.”

Jones’ composition work includes episodes of “American Dad,” “DuckTales” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Visitors will be able to observe within the orchestral tracking room and recording studio control room during the recording process. All four of CCC’s tracking rooms will be used simultaneously.

A question-and-answer session with Jones will follow the recording session.

“This is a rare opportunity for everyone to see how film, game and television series scores are created and recorded with a live studio orchestra,” CCC Music Department Chair Brian Rose said.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Rose at 503-594-3340 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
