Music from the Movies, 7:30 p.m. (not part of subscription series)
Following the afternoon festival, join Lexington Symphony for an evening of cinema’s most iconic music, played by a live orchestra. This is music from the silver screen as you’ve never heard it before: Experience everything from Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Henry Mancini's Peter Gunn to Danny Elfman's Batman Returns and Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings. How would the film change with different music? What stirs the viewer to feel love or fear or pride when they’re watching a film? Discover how this thrilling and beloved music created some of cinema's greatest moments.
