Film­mak­ers set to score at con­cert

Central Leader - - News -

Auck­land Phil­har­mo­nia Orches­tra’s Night at the Movies con­cert is re­turn­ing big­ger and bet­ter than be­fore and in­cludes an in­no­va­tive new com­pe­ti­tion.

Re­turn of a Night at the Movies, held at the Aotea Cen­tre, will again be an op­por­tu­nity to hear iconic film scores played live by a full orches­tra.

This year the event in­cor­po­rates the Cut To: Mu­sic com­pe­ti­tion, invit­ing new film­mak­ers to cre­ate a short film to fit a pre­pared or­ches­tral score.

The win­ner will have their film screened at Re­turn of a Night at the Movies on June 14, with the score per­formed by the Auck­land Phil­har- mo­nia Orches­tra.

Orches­tra chief ex­ec­u­tive Bar­bara Glaser says the com­pe­ti­tion pro­vides a unique chal­lenge for direc­tors who are used to fit­ting the score to images.

“We en­cour­age film direc­tors from around the coun­try to open their ears to mu­sic, and be led by what they hear,” she says.

The con­cert will also fea­ture pieces from film favourites such as Lau­rence of Ara­bia, Star Wars, Lion King and Pi­rates of the Caribbean.

Tick­ets to Re­turn of a Night at the Movies are avail­able from Tick­etek.
