If you’re a cinephile who hasn’t been to a symphony in a while, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s (TSO) latest program might just lure you back.
Tomorrow marks the final night of the TSO’s Best of Hollywood series’ April run. The performance offers guests a chance to hear some of the world’s finest musicians play tunes from Hollywood’s most beloved films. The concert includes renditions of When You Wish Upon a Star (Pinocchio), Over the Rainbow (The Wizard of Oz), and Let it Go (Frozen). And believe me, you haven’t truly experienced The Godfather’s Love Theme until a live orchestra blasts its seductive notes straight into your noggin.
The TSO’s Best of Hollywood program:
American conductor Richard Kaufman (Principal Pops Conductor of Pacific Symphony, and Pops Conductor Laureate of the Dallas Symphony) makes his TSO début with Best of Hollywood (April 2, 3 & 6). Kaufman shares the stage with his own daughter, singer/actress Whitney Claire Kaufman, offering music from Tinseltown’s most memorable films—including selections from such fabulous scores as The Untouchables, Frozen, Out of Africa, Ben-Hur, Dr. Zhivago, The Wizard of Oz, The Magnificent Seven, The Godfather, Gone with the Wind, and many more—complete with stories and anecdotes shared throughout the performance.
