The conductor’s baton will soar with live music from Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Fiddler on the Roof, Cinema Paradiso, Beethoven, Dvorak and more when the Energy Corridor of Houston Orchestra (ECHOrchestra) opens its first concert of the fall season, “Cinema Serenade,” 7-9:30pm Friday, October 21, at BridgePoint Bible Church.
Featuring captivating music from classic films, “Cinema Serenade” will set the Hollywood mood by handing out free bags of popcorn to each audience member.
Internationally renowned violinist virtuoso Steven Greenman, who the Washington Post described as “particularly impressive,” will be the featured soloist. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that "Greenman is a violinist, which is a bit like saying LeBron James is a basketball player; Greenman … might even have more moves."
Greenman will perform two of famed movie composer John Williams most endearing songs, “Theme from Schindler’s List” and “Fiddler on the Roof” with ECHOrchestra, led by Conductor/Violinist Michael Fahey.
