During the weekend of the Academy Awards, the Portland Chamber Orchestra will perform scores from Oscar-nominated films. The concerts will be hosted by movie music expert, Edmund Stone. Two performances are planned in the Portland Metro area:
At the February 23rd concert, the PCO will also honor legendary conductor, arranger and clarinetist, Norman Leyden. Several arrangements by Leyden – including the theme from Laura, “Colonel Bogey’s March” and “Moon River” – will be performed. Singer Susannah Mars will also be featured. A pre-concert fundraiser with silent auction will be held starting at 5:30pm. Tickets for the fundraiser at the Scottish Rite Center are available at the Portland Chamber Orchestra website.
The concert will feature selections from cinema classics, including West Side Story, Bridge over the River Kwai, The Magnificent Seven, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Music from more recent films will include Schindler’s List, Cinema Paradiso, Star Trek and several James Bond films.
Portland Chamber Orchestra’s Artistic Director Yaacov Bergman selected the music with Edmund Stone. Stone hosts programming on All Classical Portland on weekend afternoons and evenings. In 2006 he created “The Score,” a national (and now international) syndicated film music program, heard on All Classical Portland every Saturday and Sunday at 2 pm, and syndicated to more than 50 U.S. cities.
