I don’t see myself necessarily having a burning desire to write a symphony.
Luckily, there is John Mauceri leading the 87-piece Hollywood Symphony Orchestra and the 45-member Page L.A. Choir. For this Halloween, Elfman will help them to present, for the first time in the U.S., his scores for Tim Burton’s films in an orchestral concert performance, scheduled appropriately on All Hallow’s Eve at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.
Elfman + Halloween= my happy place.
Danny Elfman is one of those composers that you just know right off the bat that it is him. He has such a distinct style, that the music is a character in itself in every of his collaborations with a film.
With 15 Tim Burton movies alone, you are sure to have heard his songs. Even if you’re not a Burton fan, I am pretty sure you have heard ” The Simpson’s” theme song once or twice.
Elfman has been helping Burton with movies from “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” in 1985 and going all the way up to the latest “Dark Shadows” and “Frankenweenie.” ( i love you sparky!) Personal favorite: Sleepy Hollow
Elfman himself is going to be right along Mauceri and his orchestra to perform songs from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
So hint hint: I kindddaaaa want to go to this and tickets just went on sale Friday and they are selling fast!
“Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton” is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. on Oct. 31 at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live. Tickets went on sale Sept. 13 at 10 a.m. through AXS.com.
