CINEMATIC – Queensland Symphony Orchestra
What would movies be without music? Ever since the days of silent film, soundtracks have been an integral part of the cinema experience. A great soundtrack can make us tense, bring us to tears, or fill us with a sense of exhilaration. This year Queensland Symphony Orchestra launches a new concert series called CINEMATIC – a celebration of the blockbuster music that has helped define the greatest movies of all time. The 2019 theme is ‘Fantastic Worlds’ – so there will be music from movies that have transported us to amazing places. Whether it’s the tinkling bells of the celeste at the beginning of Harry Potter or the brilliant blast of brass that kicks off Star Wars, movie music fires our imagination and enhances the storytelling on screen. From Hans Zimmer to John Williams and Howard Shore, CINEMATIC is a not-to-be-missed concert experience.
CINEMATIC will be hosted and conducted by acclaimed conductor Nicholas Buc, movie music specialist and co-presenter of The Art of the Score podcast.
