January 6, 2024 – The Symphony of the Hills presents their Pops concert, Pops and Popcorn: A Night at the Movies, on Saturday, January 6, 2024, at 7 pm in the Cailloux Theater.
Our Pops Concert this season features the great orchestral music that has accompanied some of the most popular films of our time. You will see titles on this concert by some of music history’s finest composers. They capture our hearts and minds by vividly connecting their artistry to the character or action. Great movie music also allows us to see in our mind’s eye the character and action when only hearing the music alone!
Another amazing fact about film scores is that they have proven to be worthy as stand-alone concert works in the same way that opera and incidental music might remain more popular than the play or opera ever were. Many composers set their most popular film/stage works as concert suites for this very reason. So, we celebrate one of the great American composers, John Williams, on the second half of this concert with the complete orchestral suite from Star Wars. Enjoy, and please pass the popcorn!
