Last year, composer Rolfe Kent was at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Bros. recording his score for the new Jason Reitman film, Labor Day. Released on January 31, 2014, the film, which stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, marks the fourth time that Reitman and Kent had worked together.

Rolfe Kent conducted a 44-piece string and piano ensemble of the Hollywood Studio Symphony at the Eastwood Scoring Stage.
