The magic of film and music will unfold in the performance spotlight when Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra presents the program "Symphony Goes to the Movies."
The special event will be held at 2 and 7 p.m. June 22 at Crown Point High School Auditorium, 1500 S. Main St., Crown Point.
Soundtracks have long been popular with film fans and the orchestra, under the direction of music director/conductor Kirk Muspratt will dig into a mixed bag of music for this show.
"I really wanted to make sure this concert featured music from all different time periods and genres of cinematic history," Muspratt stated in a press release. "From silent films to westerns and sci-fi to romance, this will be a great event for the entire family."
Muspratt, a fan of movie music, has various tunes planned for the show, including compositions from films such as "Chariots of Fire," "Raiders of the Lost Ark," "The Wizard of Oz," "Superman," "Gone With the Wind," "Saving Private Ryan" and others. The orchestra's movie music concert is sponsored by the Morrow Family Foundation and Neal Family Foundation.
