The Sound of Hollywood in Concert
By David Wood
Following their phenomenal John Williams concert in 2019, The Studio Orchestra returns to Cheltenham Town Hall with a glittering celebration of the world's greatest film scores on Saturday, November 13, at 7.30pm.
With the full force of a 70-piece hand picked orchestra, the concert will celebrate some of the most memorable film music that has captured our hearts and imagination over the past 80 years - from the golden age of Hollywood right up to the present day.
Shining a spotlight on the film scoring talents of John Williams, Bernard Hermann, Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer and Maurice Jarre to name a few, the concert will feature iconic music from Harry Potter, Psycho!, Lawrence of Arabia, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and many more.
Prepare for a cinematic musical adventure like no other and the long-awaited return of a live orchestra!
Jack Campey, artistic director and principal conductor, said: "We are delighted to be returning to Cheltenham Town Hall, a truly special venue for us as this is where we had our debut concert in 2019, The Music of John Williams.
"The rapturous reception we received blew us away, and we just knew we had to come back. The pandemic threw a spanner in our plans, but we have worked tirelessly to overcome many challenges to get this concert off the ground and we are so excited to finally be returning to the wonderful acoustics of Cheltenham Town Hall.
"The concert will feature our largest orchestra yet, consisting of some of the finest orchestral players in the UK, and will be a vibrant celebration of iconic film music over the past 80 years.
"There will be something for everyone at this concert, with music carefully curated to showcase the variety and breadth that film music has to offer. The concert will be a chance to show off the incredible talents of film composers, shining a spotlight that they don't normally get, solely on them. It's going to be a pure blockbuster!"
The Studio Orchestra is made up from some of the best freelance professional musicians in the UK. Each musician brings their own musicality, experience and style which helps give that special sound to the orchestra.
