Online PR News – 23-October-2012 –The Dallas Chamber Symphony’s inaugural season continues with its debut Film Score Series on November 13, 2012 at the newly opened City Performance Hall in Dallas. This first-of-its-kind event series for North Texas and will be kicked off with the world-premiere performance of Brian Satterwhite’s DCS-commissioned score for Harold Lloyd’s 1921 classic silent film A Sailor-Made Man. The score will be performed live-to-film by some of the area’s finest musicians. Renowned Austin-based film composer Brian Satterwhite will be in attendance.
“We are all very excited to introduce this truly unique fine arts experience to Dallas, and the City Performance Hall is acoustically and technically the ideal location to host a live-to-film musical performance,” says Richard McKay, Artistic Director and Conductor of the Dallas Chamber Symphony. “The audience will be equally impressed with our musicians as we will feature an intimate ensemble of some of the Chamber Symphony’s finest players. Our musicians will shine as they perform one of our boldest and most innovative programs of the season.”
The debut film score program begins with the contemporary and virtuosic music of American composer, John Adams, in his frenetic and entertaining Chamber Symphony. Next, Michael Torke’s Adjustable Wrench will be featured as a stellar example of the procedural, yet evocative cinematic sounds of American minimalist music. These pieces, when paired with Brian Satterwhite’s newly completed score for A Sailor-Made Man, provide a diversified and fascinating appraisal of three modern American composers and their interpretively diverse programmatic palettes. According to Jing Wang, internationally-renowned violinist and Co-concertmaster of the Dallas Chamber Symphony, this November 13 event, along with the entire DCS Film Score Series is sure to please all audiences, from novice concertgoers to seasoned film enthusiasts.
