Behind the Scenes Event
Crescendo Project and Classical MPR Present Roll Credits Live!
Wed May 16, 2012 6PM
UBS Forum / Minnesota Public Radio
480 Cedar Street
St. Paul, MN 55101
To be honest, watching the recording of a disc-based radio show normally offers all the excitement of a cow looking over a fence. A couple of people playing CDs and chatting. Flash mob fodder! Of course, Guernseys have their charms, and so does Roll Credits, live at the UBS Forum. Classical MPR hosts Lynne Warfel and Bill Morelock will play film music—the classics and the new—and chat!
Enlivening the evening may be Lynne's threatened dramatic reading of President Merkin Muffley's monologue from Doctor Strangelove, in the voice of Katherine Hepburn. They will, certainly, trot out the old favorites from the Golden Age of Hollywood, when the music was better than the acting, and from today's films, when the acting is better than ... well, we can argue about that when the time comes. So if you're a movie music fan, come and hang out with a couple of movie music fans, and join 'em in the pasture. Cue the Copland and the open chords!
Wine and light hors d'oeuvres served
