Composing Superhero Soundtracks –
"Symphonic Cosplay" presentation
    with
Benjamin Rous, conductor
Rodney Martell, bass trombonist, VSO
Moderated by Chaz Stuart, WHRO

Have you ever wondered how composers invent iconic superhero
themes?   Just like set and costume design add to the depth of a
character, the soundtrack adds a 4th dimension.  Join the Virginia
Symphony Orchestra in a panel discussion about your most beloved
film scores. Bring your questions about the composition process, the
music industry, the contrasting soundscapes of Jack Nicholson and
Heath Ledger, and even Easter eggs buried in Star Wars themes!  Enjoy
a special sneak peek of the VSO's "COMICONcert" coming up on
October 27, 7:30PM at the Sandler Center.
