This year’s gala pays homage to great musical works for the silver screen, from poignant historical dramas to a galaxy far, far away.

Conductor Jessica Gethin takes the podium to present iconic orchestrations from PsychoStar Wars and other cinematic classics. Concertmaster Kirsten Williams is featured in the moving theme from Schindler’s List and the Romance from The Gadfly.

The program also includes a suite from To Rest in Peace by Australian composer Leah Curtis, specifically arranged for the CSO.
