Daniele Rosina conductor

Not until the 1927 release of Warner's The Jazz Singer did the use of sound in movies capture the attention of so many – today film music is often the most notable part of the cinema-going experience. Bringing to life the on-screen action, film score composers such as Bernard Herrmann have left an imprint on all of us, evoking emotions through music on a mass scale unlike any other medium.

The Music Society Philharmonic Orchestra explores film music and its relationship with major production houses and orchestras such as the Boston Pops and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.

Programme includes:

  • Schoenberg
    Fanfare for a Bowl Concert
  • Mussorgsky, arr. Stokowski
    Boris Godunov: A Symphonic Synthesis
  • Prokofiev
    Excerpts from Romeo and Juliet
  • Selection of music from Bernard Herrmann's film scores including:
    Taxi Driver: A night piece for Orchestra
    Psycho: A Suite for Strings

Venue: Elgar Concert Hall, Bramall Music Building

Tickets: £10, £8 concessions, £3 students/under 18s (Available via The Bramall website or by phone +44 (0)121 414 4414)
