From the murderous intrique of 1940's film noir to the silly classics of animation, this is pocorn fare the MUSE/IQUE way. Our cast includes pioneering cellist Matt Haimovitz playing one of the most thrilling pieces of cello music ever featured on film. The evening also stars Wendie Malick leading a fresh, humorous presentation of Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guid to the Orchestra, loved anew thanks to its prominence in the film Moonrise Kingdom. The musicians of MUSE/IQUE unfurl the work of Elmer Bernstein (Summer and Smoke), Jerry Goldsmith (The Russia House) and Erich Korngold (Deception). The event culminates in a world premiere, mixing music and images by award-winning composer Peter Golub.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for picnicking and mingling.
