Scoring Stages: Sony (MGM)

Sony Pictures Studios (MGM)
Streisand Scoring Stage
                            
Originally used as a shooting stage, it was later transformed into a scoring stage. One of the first scores recorded here was The Wizard of Oz (1939). During the studio system, all MGM musicals were recorded here. Johnny Green was the Music Director at MGM from 1949 to 1959, and contributed to the sound of the MGM Symphony Orchestra. Eventually the studio was renamed Sony Pictures Studios. Over the years, mementos have appeared throughout the stage, including John Lasseter's Hawaiian shirts and a model USS Enterprise. The stage was later dedicated to Barbra Streisand in 2004, and continues to be one of the most used scoring stages in Hollywood.
