Middlesex Concert Band Presents Songs of the Silver Screen
Sometimes, the most memorable part of a movie is the music associated itwhether an original song or music drawn from classical and popular repertoires. In Songs of the Silver Screen, the Middlesex Concert Band will explore a broad cross-section of movie music. In addition to lots of great instrumental music, the concert will also feature singers from Voices of Hope who will give voice to some of the best-love movie songs of all time. Songs of the Silver Screen will be presented on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. in the Galvin Middle School Auditorium, 525 Main Street, Wakefield, MA. Doors open at 2:00 p.m. for the popular annual gift basket raffle. Music Director Mark Olson has programmed an exciting afternoon of music, featuring more than a dozen memorable movie songs. From classical pieces like Richard Strausss Also Sprach Zarathustra, which is forever linked in moviegoers minds to the sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, to the funky jazz strains of Henry Mancinis Pink Panther Theme and the beautiful love song I Will Always Love You, popularized by Whitney Houston in Bodyguard, there will something for everyone in this blockbuster of a concert. Ever since sound became a part of movies, music and film have had a symbiotic relationship, Olson explained. Music has been used to promote and enhance the story on the screen and, in some cases, songs have become popular only after they were featured in a movie. Songs of the Silver Screen will put a smile on everyones face. When looking at the contribution music makes to a movie, there are certain studios and franchises that manage to string together one mega-hit after another. One studio that certainly stands tall in that regard is Disney Studios, which has had fourteen Oscar-winning original songs through the years, and countless other nominations. The concert includes a medley of five of those award-winning songs in Disney at the Oscars, which features Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah from A Song of the South, Chim Chim Cher-ee from Mary Poppins, When You Wish Upon a Star from Pinocchio, The Bare Necessities from The Jungle Book, and Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid. Of course, one of the most iconic Disney images is of Mickey Mouse in wizards robe and hat from the animated classic Fantasia. A highlight of the concert program is a full-length arrangement of Paul Dukass The Sorcerers Apprentice. The Middlesex Concert Band is thrilled to welcome several members of Voices of Hope to share the stage for this concert. These talented singers will be performing with the band on several pieces, including As Time Goes By, which is forever linked to the classic film Casablanca, Theme from New York, New York, which found a much longer-lasting success as a jazz standard than the movie of the same name, the haunting love song I Will Always Love You, from Bodyguard, and the joyful Ive Had the Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing. Of course, no concert of movie songs would be complete without the song most often rated as the best of all timeSomewhere Over the Rainbow from The Wizard of Oz. We are pleased to feature some of the songs known for their lyrics, remarked Olson, and are excited to join with members of Voices of Hope to present them to you. Voices of Hope (VOH) is a nonprofit organization based in Lawrence, Massachusetts, dedicated to raising funds for cancer research through theatrical performances. With over 100 members who each share a passion for the performing arts and a desire to join the fight against cancer, VOH has donated over $380,000 to cancer research since they started performing in 2009. Through song we celebrate those we love, remember those we have lost, honor those who fight, and rejoice for those who survive, explained Greg Chastain, president and founder of VOH. We are very honored to be invited to sing with such a talented orchestra and cannot wait to share this beautiful music with all in attendance, said Chastain It's going to be a wonderful afternoon of music we all know and love. Rounding out the afternoons musical program are a few other favorites like the classic Western theme from The Magnificent Seven, a suite of chart-topping James Bond theme songs, the familiar strains of Colonel Bogey March featured in Bridge Over the River Kwai, and a collection from the ever-popular John Williams in John Williams: A Fantasy of Flight, including themes from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Harry Potter, and, naturally, Star Wars. In addition to nearly two hours of great music, Songs of the Silver Screen also features the Middlesex Concert Bands annual gift basket raffle. This has become a highly-anticipated event, featuring up to a dozen themes baskets packed with gourmet foods and wines, valuable gift certificates, and other exciting gift items. Doors open at 2:00 p.m. so concertgoers will have plenty of time to browse the raffle baskets. Concertgoers will also enjoy free refreshments during the afternoon. The Middlesex Concert Band is a nonprofit, community band based in Wakefield, Massachusetts, and made up of more than 50 musicians of all ages who come from throughout Northeast Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. Originally founded in the 1950s as a marching band, the group evolved into a concert band in 1975 and has been performing continuously around the region since then.
