3rd Year Anniversary Show Preview: Classical Moments in Movies
August 10 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Over hundreds of years, every theme under the sunlight has found its way into the narrative body of cinema, and classical music is no exception. Many great composers have thus attracted directors of different genres – together they reawaken the dormant classical music through cinematic expression.
ROOTS’ Third Anniversary Celebration
Project R: Classical Season
The First Movement: Classical Moments in Movies
Classical music was once the backbone of American popular entertainment, however, entering the 1960s, filmmakers rarely implanted classical music as the central components of storyline or atmosphere anymore. In the past 50 years, the vast media and advertising industry has also transformed the image of the concert hall from an artistic beacon to a subject of revolt.
Today, classical music is returning to our everyday lives in a different way, and young people are taking a new look at classical moments in movies. For the first chapter of Project R’s classical season, we will explore the classical moments from nine classic movie scenes.
The Story of Project R
Project R is a high standard performance brand representing the professional standard of jazz. Initiated by ROOTS MUSIC and FENNESSY, Project R produces performance series including jazz special, classical jazz, jazz movie soundtrack, character tribute, city impressions and other thematic seasons around jazz genre, history of jazz, its influence on modern music development and more.
In each season, we invite senior jazz musicians from home and abroad for each high standard and carefully-selected lineup. We hope to portray a clear impression of the history of jazz and deliver a professional and excellent live experience for the audience.
We plan to feature in various scenes, stages and cities to explore all the possibilities of jazz, and we will strive to build a leading jazz performance highland brand.
