Can you imagine a Hollywood blockbuster movie without that incredible music? Neither can we! This family friendly Pops concert will feature music from several of Hollywood’s most recognizable soundtracks, including: Pirates of the Caribbean, James Bond, Batman: The Dark Knight, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, to name a few.
Also, on the program is a “sound track” (so to speak) for a film that has never been made, entitled Godzilla Eats Las Vegas. This music composed by the popular American composer, Eric Whitacre, is one of the most entertaining pieces of music you will ever hear anywhere. It musically depicts the city of Las Vegas being attacked by, the big man himself, Godzilla. But before all hope is lost an army of marching Elvi (plural of Elvis) parachute in to save the day. This outrageous and fun piece of music is something you just have to see and hear for yourself!
