Big Music in the Movies… and Knowing What to Steal
w/ Christopher Palestrant
Wednesday, Feb. 24, 7:30
Come discover the movies’ greatest secret. Did you know that when George Lucas was directing Star Wars in 1977, he needed something new for his theme music? John Williams gave it to him: a trick taken from… an opera written in 1869! His work resulted in one of the most popular and important film scores ever written. Come discover connections Chris has found between movie scores and Romantic-era symphonic music and the effect it has on you when you go to the cinema. Experience the second revolution in film scoring: it will change the way you watch movies forever!
The Outer Banks Community Foundation manages our endowment.
