Home Alone

   The concert tonight was the John Williams score to the movie "Home Alone". The Symphony played the music live while the movie ran on 3 large screens set up around the stage. It was surprisingly fun and effective. The hall was sold out and the audience was fun and enthusiastic, laughing and applauding from the opening 20th Century Fox fanfare. They'd all arrived dressed nicely and looking forward to a nice evening. At the end they all stayed for the extended finale after the credits and gave the orchestra and chorus and rousing standing ovation. There's something magical about being in a full theater with an enthusiastic audience for a special screening of a movie that we don't get watching them home alone. A great night!
