Featuring music and themes from films such as: ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’, ‘Meet Me in St. Louis’ and ‘James Bond, through to contemporary classics such as John Williams’ ‘Catch Me If You Can’ soundtrack – all performed in the BBC Big Band’s own inimitable style. Emer and the orchestra will also take a look at the music of some of the leading-ladies of film music, including Judy Garland, Shirley Bassey and Marilyn Munroe.
A not-to-be-missed evening for both music and movie fans of all ages.
