This concert features our 10-piece film-music ensemble, performing original soundtracks from the 1920-80s by composers from countries which formerly comprised the Soviet Union. The program presents music from iconic films including "It's a Wonderful Life" with score by Dimitri Tiomkin, "Man with a Movie Camera," one of the earliest depictions of the cities of Ukraine on film, "The Cranes are Flying," and "The Snowstorm." Film highlights will accompany the music.
This program is supported in part by an arts grant from the City of West Hollywood and by a grant from the L.A. County Department of Arts and Culture. The concert is free for West Hollywood residents.
