I started going to these things since April.  My first was “Batman-Live” with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.  I live in the East Coast and this program was not being given anywhere near me, so, I had to brave a cross-coast flight to San Fran--my first airplane ride, ever.  The orchestra performed beautifully—the brass section was very strong.  I don’t regret my experience.

 

Since then, I’ve attended these:

Jaws- Wolf Trap-Vienna, VA

Casino Royale-Wolf Trap-Vienna, VA

Harry Potter…Azkaban- Wolf Trap-Vienna, VA

Jurassic Park-Indianapolis, IN

Get Out-Washington, DC

Star Wars: ANH- Washington, DC

Star Wars: ANH- Baltimore, MD

Star Wars: ESB-Washington, DC

Jurassic Park-San Francisco, CA

 

I would love to see the following:

Aliens-Live

Independence Day-Live

 

I’ve started writing letters to the artistic directors representing the orchestras/music centers in my area in my asking them to present these said programs.  For Aliens-Live, I worked in a #MeTooMovement angle in my letter.  I said that the female members of that movement will give a cathartic cheer when Ripley says the line, “Get off her, you bitch.”

 

Will my pleas be answered?  We’ll know during the first quarter of 2019.  That’s when the orchestras/music centers will announce their schedules for the 2019/2020 season that begins in September.  Some orchestras will have their summer-concert schedules posted during that period, also.

 

Keep your fingers crossed.

I usually hate these things, but I think I've seen three because they've been part of the Krakow festival programme -- KON-TIKI, PERFUME: STORY OF A MURDERER and GLADIATOR. Back in the early 2010s, all of them (and with the composers present).

 

Slightly more interesting has been a couple of silent film concerts, where the artist performs their own music to screen. There was one screening of BERLIN - SYMPHONIE EINER GROSSTADT many years ago, for example, with music by electronica duo Tronthaim or some such thing. And a screening at the Norwegian opera house of an obscure Brazilian art film from the 30s, with music by Norwegian jazz wiz Bugge Wesseltoft.

So why do you hate those? Isn't this the a valid way of presenting film music in concert? Isn't it in fact the ONLY way that actually makes sense?

No! It should be the OST performed live and only the OST! The OST presents the composers' vision not the superfluous stuff they recorded for the film!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Birdman

The Fellowship of the Ring

The Two Towers

The Return of the King

 

And seeing Home Alone today!  Star Wars in January.

 

I also had tickets to see E.T. and Naked Lunch but wasn't able to make it.

 

Apollo 13, the Williams Harry Potters, Interstellar, and Jurassic Park are at the top of my wish list.

I've been to:

 

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Titanic

Star Wars

West Side Story

 

I've already booked tickets for The Empire Strikes Back next year.

 

I'm hoping RotJ will follow the year after and I'd love to catch up on RotK at some point.

 

I would also like to see:

Jurassic Park

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

and maybe Home Alone

I recently watched E.T. at home and realized I had forgotten how fantasticly that score supports the film and hiw it grows bigger and bigger towards that amazing climax. They did a live to projection performance of it in Brussels last year and since watching the film again I really regret not going.

So May 9 & 10 the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra  will be doing JP live to projection and on the 11th and 12th E.T. 

 

I could choose to do both or just won. But for me there is only one real choice. E.T. on Sat. May 11. 

I love JP but I LOVE E.T.

Nice I'm jealous, Jurassic Park has still never played near me.

 

I've seen ET live to projection, in San Francisco, and it was amazing.
