Suspense! Sinister plots! Mistaken identities! This year's Big Picture is a thrilling tribute to the classic films of Alfred Hitchcock. Mesmerizing, haunting and psychologically gripping scores by Bernard Herrmann (Vertigo, North by Northwest), Dimitri Tiomkin (Strangers on a Train, Dial M for Murder) and more will be played live while spellbinding scenes are projected on the Bowl’s big screen.
Grammy®-winning musician and composer Marcus Miller teams up with award-winning producer/director Reginald Hudlin for a soulful celebration of music and movies, with clips on the Bowl’s big screen. From Stormy Weather and Super Fly to Purple Rain and Waiting to Exhale, it will be an unforgettable evening marked by a stellar array of special guest performances.
This performance of Holst’s Planets will transport the audience to another realm: the evocative music will be accompanied by astonishing images from NASA and JPL rovers and satellites, as well as computer-generated graphics of the Mars landing and more. Opening the program, Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Erskine - Concerto for Drum Set and Orchestra is sure to send listeners into the stratosphere.
