Hollywood Composers: Musicians in Exile
Continuing the Covid tradition of online concerts, brought to you live from the Adam Concert Room at the New Zealand School of Music on Nov. 9, 4pm EST (Nov. 10, 10am in NZ). Music that is close to my heart, so very excited to share the program!
Musicians in Exile

Prior to each live performance, a selection or sample of a film featuring the score will be presented for each composer. I will provide commentary on the connection between the film scores and concert music and brief discussion of the history and events these composers faced. There will be time for a Q&A session with the audience at the end of the program.
