LaGrange Symphony Orchestra Sounds Of Drama
September 24 @ 7:30 pm EDT
We open our anniversary season with some of the rarer gems from the silver screen, including Eric Coates’ music from 1955’s The Dambusters and Arthur Bliss’ march from the 1936 classic Things to Come. Both were lauded as composers of classical music as well as renowned film composers. The first half of our program also includes music from Pirates of the Caribbean, E.T., the beautifully lyrical Gabriel’s Oboe from The Mission and of course, the main theme from Star Wars. The evening continues with The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (used for the wonderful Disney classic of the same name) and concludes with a 100-year anniversary performance of Stravinsky’s electrifying Firebird Suite of 1919!
