Lights. Camera. Action. Cue music! In this exclusive presentation of “Film Music: Groundbreaking Director/Composer Collaborations,” Peabody Award-winning Broadcaster & Producer and WQXR radio host Elliott Forrest will explore the unique relationship of film composers and directors, charting the evolution of the art form. Within the discussion, he will also address why film composers’ scores were initially not welcome for performance in concert halls and how that has changed today.

Film buffs and music lovers will experience an in-depth, interactive, cinematic ride. Through video clips from some of his favorite and historically significant films, Mr. Forrest will showcase music by such groundbreaking composers as Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane, Psycho, Vertigo, Taxi Driver), John Williams (Star Wars, Schindler’s List), Nino Rota (The Godfather), Ennio Morricone (The Mission), Danny Elfman (Edward Scissorhands), and more.
