Melbourne Youth Orchestras – Movie Magic for Spring

Melbourne Youth Orchestras

Prsented by Melbourne Youth Orchestras


Celebrating film music’s evolution, from Max Steiner to Rachel Portman.

Over the past century, cinema has built a deep, magical, and unbreakable bond between its orchestral music and the human psyche. From the first wholly original film score written in 1932, every development in the concert hall has been immediately and creatively reflected in music for the movies.

The second half of this concert features the soaring mountain tops of film composition over the past 100 years, from the early luminaries Max Steiner and Erich Korngold to the greats of today, including Rachel Portman. MYO will revel in thrilling music from Gone with the Wind to Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight and much more – all in all a feast of musical movie magic.
