Hooray for Hollywood!

Hooray for Hollywood!

The nominees have been announced and the speculation has begun – who will be awarded the coveted awards from the Academy this year?
To help you get in the mood for the occasion, your Coast Symphony Orchestra is presenting a wonderful light-classics concert of music that has been made popular through the magic of the cinema.
Some soundtracks are composed specifically for a given film – for instance, the music of Harry Potter’s world. None of the themes existed prior to the first movie’s release however, all the songs have become part of our collective consciousness in the audience.
Some songs are newly created for their life in film but then take on a life of their own after their début. The achingly beautiful main theme from Schindler’s List has become a staple violin solo – and continues to bring sighs and tears to everyone who hears it.
Other songs existed long before they hit the big screen. The film Amadeus brought dozens of Mozart’s best-loved compositions to the mainstream public and Disney’s Fantasia visually celebrated works from a collection of composers, including Mussorsky’s terrifying Night on Bald Mountain.
Join the Coast Symphony Orchestra and their conductor, Edette Gagné, as they bring you their Salute to Hollywood on Saturday, February 16 at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse Theatre and on Sunday, February 17 at the Sechelt Indian Band Hall. There will be a 1:30pm pre-concert chat with Edette with the concert itself starting at 2pm. People are encouraged to dress up in gowns and tuxedos to bring in a little Hollywood to the Coast.
There will be a few special guest including the hosts, Alec Tebbutt and Sara Douglas, along with Dayton Stockwell performing his solo debut.
