Today the Minnesota Orchestra announced its U.S. Bank Movies & Music series for the 2021-22 concert season. Conducted by Sarah Hicks, the Orchestra’s principal conductor of Live at Orchestra Hall, these special events bring feature films into the concert hall, where the movies are shown on a large screen above the stage while the Orchestra performs every note to the corresponding scores live. 

Four major films will be presented in the 2021-22 season, starting in November with the newly added 2018 Marvel Studios film phenomenon Black Panther, with Oscar-winning score by composer Ludwig Göransson. A family favorite also makes its first appearance at Orchestra Hall in November, when the Orchestra performs the score to Disney Pixar’s Toy Story, the revolutionary animated film released in 1995, with music by Randy Newman. The Orchestra continues its performances of the beloved Harry Potter series in January 2022 with the fifth installment of the film series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix™, featuring music by Nicholas Hooper, and returns to another favorite movie series with performances of John Williams’ Oscar-nominated score to the 1983 film Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, the final movie in the original Star Wars trilogy, in April 2022.

Tickets are available now for select performances of Black Panther and Toy Story, and for all performances of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Tickets for additional performances will be available to subscribers on July 26 and to single ticketholders on August 16. Subscribers save up to 15%. Young Listener (ages 6-17) discount available for select concerts. Some restrictions apply. Visit minnesotaorchestra.org for details.

In 2018, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther quickly became a global sensation and cultural phenomenon, showing a new dimension of what Super Hero films could be. Rolling Stone raved, “The film lights up the screen with a full-throttle blast of action and fun. That’s to be expected. But what sneaks up and floors you is the film’s racial conscience and profound, astonishing beauty.” Now you can relive the excitement of T’Challa becoming king and battling Killmonger, all while the Minnesota Orchestra performs Ludwig Göransson’s Oscar-winning score live to picture.

Ever wonder what toys do when people aren’t around? Toy Story answers that question with a fantastic funfilled journey, viewed mostly through the eyes of two rival toys—Woody, the lanky, likable cowboy, and Buzz Lightyear, the fearless space ranger.
