A Hollywood movie musical is all about making the stars sound great. A big part of that is done with an orchestra. Volunteer State Community College Director of Entertainment Media Production, Steve Bishir, was part of the team that recorded the orchestra for the Netflix hit “The Prom.” The movie stars Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and James Corden. Bishir traveled to London, England last March for the project.
