There have been Grease and Frozen sing-alongs, and not to mention, close to every summer, the Hollywood Bowl orchestra pays homage to the great movie scores from the major studios’ libraries (last summer was DreamWorks Animation, the year before it was Walt Disney-Pixar). On Saturday, January 24, the Hollywood Studio Symphony will be performing Nino Rota’s Oscar-nominated, iconic score live while the Francis Ford Coppola film is simultaneously shown in high definition on the big screen. The Godfather LIVE is produced by AEG LIVE and CineConcerts. Conductor and producer Justin Freer will be overseeing the event. The event employs Local 47 musicians, which is a plus for the union. With most film scores nowadays being recorded abroad without U.S. musicians, there has been an increase stateside with these types of concerts and a demand for Local 47 performers.
