Here’s an update about the Beyond Wind River : The Arapaho Covered Wagon project. The score for the movie is nearing completion. When we get the manuscript in hand, the project will be shopped around to orchestras and chamber groups to perform it.
The Covered Wagon is a 1923 classic silent movie that includes over 200 tribal members, mostly Northern Arapaho from Wyoming who acted as background talent.
The casting director, Tim McCoy, got his first break with this movie. He went on to be a star on both the silent screen and with talkies.
The composer is Anne Guzzo who is a music professor at the University of Wyoming.
