From an exploration of cinematic scores to a celebration of Beethoven’s birth, BYU’s instrumental ensembles have six unforgettable performances in store for virtual audiences in November.

The Symphonic Band, directed by Kirt Saville, will feature music of the movies. This program explores some of the greatest film scores ever written, including “ET: The Extra-terrestrial,” “Harry Potter,” “Pirates of the Caribbean” and more.

“Performing without a live audience will be a first for us, but we are eager for the opportunity to share in the beauty and power of music-making with our livestreaming audience,” Saville said. “We are indeed grateful for the technology that makes it possible for our collective artistic voices to be heard and shared.”
