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.
