5 Great Movie Nights in 2011!

The New York Philharmonic goes to the movies in style this fall! In addition to special performances for the 50th Anniversary of West Side Story on September 7 and 8, and A Night at the Movies with Academy Award-winning composer and conductor John Williams on October 25, the Orchestra presents a third program of music and film on November 2 and 3 to celebrate Philip Glass’s 75th birthday year. The two concerts feature LIVE performances of Mr. Glass’s score for Godfrey Reggio’s 1982 cult classic Koyaanisqatsi — the Philharmonic’s first performances of the work — in conjunction with the film. Joining the Orchestra and the composer will be the Philip Glass Ensemble, conductor Michael Riesman conducting (each in their Philharmonic debuts), as well as the Westminster Symphonic Choir.

Previously, the only way to hear the New York Philharmonic perform music from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story was by attending a performance of the Symphonic Dances, which the composer had arranged for the Philharmonic and was premiered in 1961 on a special all-Bernstein Valentine’s concert. Now you can hear “Lenny’s Orchestra” play the entire score, live, as the Philharmonic celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Academy Award-winning film, September 7–8, 2011, conducted by David Newman and featuring the newly restored film in HD.

Parr, Philharmonic Patrons, and musicians traveled to Grinzing Cemetery in Vienna, to lay a wreath on the composer’s grave in commemoration of the centennial.
