The Philly POPS tips its hat to America’s blockbuster films during Epic Hollywood Soundtracks from April 10-12, 2015. Music Director Michael Krajewski created this program featuring The Philly POPS Festival Chorus, a volunteer 125-voice chorus directed by Jeff Kern, who will join him in bringing his vision to life. This performance will include popular selections from Gone With the Wind, Ben Hur, The Sound of Music, Pirates of the Caribbean, Avatar, Lord of the Rings, and more!
The Epic Hollywood Soundtracks concert lineup will include live orchestral versions of hits from some of the largest blockbuster films in cinematic history — an experience Krajewski describes as “thrilling.” “There is nothing like all of a sudden hearing this music that you’ve always heard in the background of movies, but now it’s just surrounding you,” he enthuses.
The familiar songs and sounds of early Hollywood classics up to present day hits will transform the Kimmel Center into magical cinematic destinations such as the lush Georgia plantation setting in Gone With the Wind and will have everyone looking over their shoulders expecting to see Pirates of the Caribbean’s Captain Jack Sparrow at any given moment.
This program, including intermission, is approximately two hours in length. Artists and program are subject to change without notice.
