With a total of 11 Oscars between them, stellar film composers John Williams (Star Wars, E.T.), Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings), James Horner (Titanic) and Elliot Goldenthal (Batman Forever) are more than deserving of this concert tribute from conductor Carl St. Clair, guest cellist Sophie Shao and the Pacific Symphony. This exciting evening of music from the movies and more features several premieres, including the debut of Goldenthal's Symphony in G-Sharp Minor. The New York Times calls cellist Sophie Shao's playing "eloquent" and "powerful." This young talent is a multiple award-winner, having scored top prizes at the Rostropovich and Tchaikovsky competitions. There's a preview talk with host Alan Chapman an hour before each concert.

This was an incredible experience. The whole thing, from pre-concert discussion to the last emotive sounds from that stage, was an experience I will never forget. And my seat in the center of the Promenade Circle was the best I anyone could hope for. From that position every musician in that great orchestra could be seen and watched. The sound was perfect. The knowledge about Shostakovitch so revealing. I love Russian music, and I grew up impressed with his music, but not understanding why. A night to remember.
