John Scott and The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra in concert
20-Apr-2006 - On Thursday, May 18, composer/conductor John Scott and The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra present an eclectic evening of works from memorable film scores that will delight and inspire music lovers and moviegoers alike. Maestro Scott leads the newly formed 80-member orchestra with 40-voice Cantori Domino choir through compositions for the silver screen. "I want to make concert audiences aware of the full potential of film music as an equal partner with accepted concert repertoire," confides John Scott, "and encourage them to listen to this music with fresh ears."

The concert features works ranging from John Williams' Memoirs of a Geisha, Eric Korngold's Kings Row, the premiere of a new adaptation of Elmer Bernstein's Sweet Smell of Success, Alex North's A Streetcar Named Desire, and Ralph Vaughan Williams' Scott of the Antarctic, to symphonic suites from Victor Young's Around the World in 80 Days, John Scott's Greystoke - Legend of Tarzan, and more. The finale is a new symphonic suite adapted from the critically acclaimed Scott score for Peter Snell and Charlton Heston's Antony and Cleopatra, with special guests Samantha Eggar, Michael York, and Alan Mandell, reciting Shakespeare's immortal dialogue.

The concert is presented by the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra Society. Dedicated to preserving and presenting timeless works by contemporary composers of film and television music in a setting worthy of their creative gifts and talents, the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra Society honors an art-form too rarely heard to its full dramatic effects on the concert stage. The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra Society is pleased to bring concerts featuring prominent scores from today's best films and TV series, as well as unrecognized gems from Hollywood's past, to our community. The Hollywood Symphony Orchestra Society is a 501(c)3 public benefit corporation.

Thursday, May 18th, 8 PM, Royce Hall, UCLA, Los Angeles, USA.
