Evening Series

THE SILVER SCREEN

These full-length evening concerts present a wonderful range of repertoire from classic favourites to lesser known works and exciting new commissions. Immerse yourself in the sound of music almost each night of the Festival.

What would the movie experience be like without the musical soundtrack that provides so much of the emotion and unspoken narrative of a film?  We will hear music from the Silver Screen, from the earliest exponents of the art form to the present-day giants. This will be a program filled with emotion and joy and will no doubt get the spine tingling.
