Film by Miami Students to be Featured in MUSO Concert

The intersection of music and movies sparks startling connections in the way it allows for the manipulation of the emotions of the audience.

On Wednesday, November 28 at 7:30PM the Miami University Symphony Orchestra will perform a special concert featuring the music of popular movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Princess Mononoke. This free event will take place in Hall Auditorium, and is particularly suitable for families.

Parents will enjoy the music from the golden age of Hollywood, such as the Love Scene from Vertigo and the Spellbound Concerto, both coming from Hitchcock’s movies soundtracks. Piano Professor Lian Tan will be the soloist for the Spellbound Concerto. A unique characteristic of the music is the use of the “theremin,” an eerie electronic instrument that perfectly portrays the chills associated with movie thrillers. Rob Schwimmer, the former Co-Director of the NY Theremin Society will be the special guest performing the theremin.

The highlight of the evening will be the premiere of a new movie produced by the students of Miami’s Film program, which will be accompanied live by the Miami Orchestra. The concert is free and no tickets are necessary.
