"La La Land is such a terrific film, and we're thrilled to perform the full movie score — especially this quickly after it runs in the theaters," says the orchestra's chief artistic officer, Anthony Pierce, in a statement.
As of now, the Colorado Symphony will be the only orchestra performing a live score to La La Land in the region, says Pierce. "Whether or not you saw it in the theaters, you'll get an even more dramatic effect seeing the full movie play on screen with live symphonic music."
The performance will take place Wednesday, July 12, at 7:30 p.m. and Friday, July 14, at 7:30 p.m. at Boettcher Concert Hall. Tickets will be available Friday, March 3, on the orchestra's website.
This summer, the Colorado Symphony will also present The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, a symphonic rendition of some of the music from the Legend of Zelda video-game series on June 30 and July 1, and a sampling of the upcoming season of works on July 22, conducted by Colorado Symphony Music Director Designate Brett Mitchell.
