NIGHT AT THE MOVIES STRIKES BACK WITH THE AUCKLAND PHILHARMONIA ORCHESTRA
Return of A Night at the Movies - Symphonic Pops Series, Concert 2
Saturday 14 June, 7.30pm, Aotea Centre, THE EDGE
Last year’s A Night at the Movies concert by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra proved so popular it’s returning to the Aotea Centre on Saturday 14 June. But this year it’s bigger. And better. Return of A Night at the Movies will be an evening of immense excitement for young and old – including an innovative competition to enthral budding filmmakers.
The concert is part of the APO’s Symphonic Pops Series and will be held at the Aotea Centre, THE EDGE, presenting a thrilling opportunity to here iconic film scores played live and loud by a full orchestra.
The concert features pieces from your favourite films, including Laurence of Arabia, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, Lion King, Titanic, Pirates of the Caribbean, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Bodyguard, ET and many more. Return of a Night at the Movies will be conducted by Brett Kelly, who, continuing a stellar career conducting Australia’s leading orchestras, makes his debut with the APO.
This year the concert incorporates an innovative new competition called CUT TO: MUSIC. The competition invites film-makers to create a short-film to fit a prepared orchestral score. The winner will have their film screened at Return of A Night at the Movies with the score performed live by the full Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
It looks (and sounds) interesting. I won't be there though... Perhaps next time?
