Dmitri Shostakovich said, “ I believe that the purpose of a film score is not to illustrate the action but to add an entirely new dimension.” In its “Cinematastic” concert on Sat, Nov 17, at 7:30 p.m., says Scott Green, the Shreveport Symphony will explore that dimension.

Music director Michael Butterman will feature works by film composers Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1597), Nino Rota (1911-1979), and John Williams (b. 1932).

He also features works of three art composers for film, Aaron Copland (1900-1990), Dimitri Shostakovich (1906-1975), and George Gershwin (1898-1937).

Guest performers are William Ludwig, bassoonist, and Brain R. Utley, saxophone.

Pro-rated season tickets: (318) 227-TUNE (8863).
Single tickets: $10, $20, $30 and $36.
