I hate it when events are one night only. Dreamworks Animation in Concert is coming to Wolftrap tomorrow night (June 30th) and I can’t go. Whine…. I live for concerts like this. It’s a fantastic way to introduce orchestral music to people who don’t like it. The concert features favorite moments from beloved films of DreamWorks Animation with music performed by the National Symphony Orchestra against the backdrop of large projection screens.
The celebration includes over 20 years of inspired animation and iconic music scores by award-winning composers Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson-Williams, John Powell, Alexandre Desplat, Alan Silvestri, Danny Elfman and many others. Concert-goers will experience music/scenes from iconic films including Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon and more as they are projected in HD onto the big screen as the music is played live. Tickets on sale at Tickets.com, or by calling 1-877-WOLFTRAP (965-3872) or visit wolftrap.org
DreamWorks Animation Live Entertainment Head Eric Stevens says, “We are excited to bring the stunning music of our composers to life on stage to be showcased in this great and fun event for music and movie fans of all ages.”
Justin Freer, President of CineConcerts and Producer/Conductor of DreamWorks Animation in Concert adds, “DreamWorks has brought such delight to families around the globe with their vibrant characters and adventurous stories. What carries us through these charismatic experiences is the inspired and fitting music. To be able to showcase the music in a movie-like environment is an entertainment memory we hope lasts forever.”
