Trivers/Myers Music Inc.has finished recording the music for Qwest Communications, which featured the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and were recorded "in the round" at Boettcher Hall in Denver. The orchestra provided its services to Denver-based Qwest, with the musical arrangements composed and produced by Trivers/Myers of Los Angeles.

Boettcher Hall's "in the round" configuration provided the perfect location for the 60-piece orchestra. The musicians were seated on the back two-thirds of the circular wooden stage with audience seating behind and in front of the orchestra. The recording sessions were engineered by Judy Clapp using the Toy Box remote truck from Audio Consultants; David Soran, owner of Audio Consultants handled the on-site sound recording and the five miles of sound cables necessary to hook up truck and stage.

"This recording session was challenging from beginning to end, and the musical result was outstanding," said composer John Trivers. "Sometimes, unexpected technical problems can affect the quality of the music, but in this case, everything worked in our favor." The compositions recorded were used in four TV commercial soundtracks: "On Your Terms" and "There for You," as well as an eight-minute documentary film.
