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.

Despite only "half" of the MT being on the scene, the concert was quite wonderful. They played a combination of Seasonal and "Greatest Hits" and made the crowd cheer for more, at the end of the show.
Everyone in my eight person party thoroughly enjoyed the concert. I, however, had the privilege of seeing the MT perform about 10 times during their career, and as such, knew what the MT sounded like when "full strength". My friends, and family hadn't heard the MT this way, and consequently liked the show very much. Hopefully everyone will soon be back and the MT will be full strength, once again.
