Princeton Symphony Partners with Princeton Public Library for 'PSO GOES TO THE MOVIES', 9/15
On Monday, September 15, at 7 pm, The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) and the Princeton Public Library partner to kick off the 2014-2015 PSO Soundtracks Series with "PSO Goes to the Movies: Music from the Inside Out," a cinematic presentation of the magic and mystery of music through the stories, passions, and artistry of the 105 musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra.
Music from the Inside Out is a ground-breaking documentary directed by Oscar-nominee Daniel Anker, and includes a cornucopia of sound-jazz, bluegrass, salsa, classical, and world music interwoven with musicians' personal stories, each of which has at its core the universal struggle for self-expression. The Princeton Symphony's own Music Director Rossen Milanov served as assistant conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra for many years, and is glimpsed in the film conducting "Meditation from Thais," a work which will be performed by the PSO this season, in its March 2015 concert.
Admission is free and open to the public; the film will be shown in the Princeton Public Library's Community Room. Complimentary popcorn and beverages available for a complete movie-going experience!
The PSO Soundtracks Series is presented in partnership with The Princeton Public Library, exploring music and related topics, including background on the music that the PSO performs, concert themes, and what happens behind the scenes at Princeton's only professional orchestra, the PSO.
"PSO Goes to the Movies" is a prelude event to the Princeton Symphony Orchestra's season-opening Classical Series Concert Romantic Imaginings. Tickets to the Sunday, September 28 concert featuring works by Max Bruch and Anton Bruckner are available at www.princetonsymphony.org or by calling (609) 497-0020.
