“A Night at the Movies” Concert

NEW ULM — Join the New Ulm Suzuki School of Music’s Pops Orchestra for “A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES,” presenting some of the most popular and memorable music from the world of film. The concert will be held at the New Ulm Public High School at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 14.

From the theme of “The Greatest Showman” to the unforgettable music of the Beatle’s Yellow Submarine’s “Eleanor Ribgy,” Shrek’s “Hallelujah,” Wicked’s “For Good,” Sister Act’s “I Will Follow Him,” music from “La La Land,”“Moana,” the comic opera “Orpheus in the Underworld” and more, this is the music that made Hollywood great.

The performance concludes a week-long immersive camp designed to celebrate iconic film score composers. Orchestra students hoping to cultivate their passion for music are doing so thanks to a grant from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council.

Guest clinician, Carl Rieke, Georgia, has conducted many orchestra camps throughout the southern United States including the Encore Music Camp in Atlanta, the University of Georgia Music Camp, the Atlanta Suzuki Summer Institute, and the American String Teachers Association (ASTA) Summer Camp.

Over 65 students, have rehearsed every day this week from 9 am to 4 pm. They received group instruction on their instruments, learned music performance, and engaged with experienced music performers and teachers. The youngest students also participated in visual arts enrichment classes that paralleled the camp music.

Enjoy all your favorite movie scores, old and new. Admission is $2. Children 12 and under are free.
