LAKE FOREST – The Lake Forest Civic Orchestra proudly presents its “LFCO goes to the Movies” concert on Sunday, March 12 at 4 p.m. at the Gorton Community Center in Lake Forest.
Especially fitting for this particular concert, the program will be performed in the orchestra’s home hall, The John & Nancy Hughes Theater, recently renovated and named in honor of the famous American movie director.
The LFCO’s program will take the audience on a grand tour of great musical compositions written for or used in film, including, Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours (Fantasia), Barber’s Adagio for Strings (Platoon), and John Williams’ Adventures on Earth (E.T.).
Concertgoers will also be treated to comments from our Music Director, Robert Nordling, which will explore the musical themes and their relationship to the movies’ plots and characters.
Also on the program, Grieg’s Hall of the Mountain King, Prokofiev’s Lieutenant Kije Suite, Offenbach’s The Infernal Gallop (Can Can), and Mascagni’s Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana.
