Program Notes: 

Since the days of silent pictures, movie directors have realized the power of music to help tell a story or set a scene. Some of our most prolific composers have even reached iconic status through their movie scores who otherwise may have faded in obscurity in concert halls alone. Maryland Community Band explores the music of film ranging from wartime drama and adventure to the fantastical, navigating across deserts, jungles, and high seas around the globe. Pirates and genies and dinosaurs, oh my!

This event is part of NextNOW Fest 2017
