HCM CITY (VNS) — The year's last free monthly performance under the Youth Melody Programme to educate younger generations about music and dance by the HCM City Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera will be a special show featuring musical excerpts from famous foreign films.
To be conducted and introduced by Le Phi Phi, it will feature music from Pirates of the Caribbean, Basic Instinct, Jurassic Park, James Bond, The Mission, Once Upon a Time in the West, Mission Impossible, and others.
"The concert will help audiences know how symphony music features in other kind of arts," an HBSO release said.
"Music played by the symphony orchestra is not only academic music. Sound effects created by the symphony orchestra are used as film soundtracks."
