About

At the movies, one element does more than any other to heighten the suspense, enhance the romance, and ratchet up the thrills: the music. From the earliest days of cinema, filmmakers have turned to composers to help bring their art to life. Now you can hear that music performed as part of the National Symphony Orchestra's festival Soundtracks: Music and Film.

This exciting festival will be co-directed by Leonard Slatkin—who, as a child in Hollywood, was mentored by leading composers and performers from cinema's golden age—and preeminent film composer John Williams, whose music has graced such seminal hits as Star Wars, E.T., Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and many more.

From silent films and subtitles, to click-tracks and streamers, to today's technological marvels, get an inside look at the history and art of synchronizing music to the movies in this fascinating concert that combines live performance, recorded soundtracks, engaging commentary, and exciting film clips.

Following the concert, enjoy a free post-concert "AfterWords" discussion hosted by Leonard Slatkin.
