John Debney has just been added to John Powell, Diego Navarro, Joel McNeely and, of course, Steven Allen Fox as conductors to the Varese Anniversary concert with 8 weeks of announcements left!

Just got a couple tickets for friends and many areas in the theater are already sold out.

This thing is going to be jammed packed!

Steven Allen Fox on facebook:

SARA ANDON TO PERFORM AT THE VARÈSE SARABANDE 35th ANNIVERSARY GALA!
The announcements keep coming and we are absolutely over the moon about this one! Renowned flute virtuoso Sara Andon will be a featured soloist at the Varèse Sarabande 35th Anniversary Concert Gala with the Golden State Pops Orchestra! Sara Andon is one of the busiest musicians in Los Angeles - dividing her time between the recording studio with composers like Marco Beltrami, Alex Heffes and Rolfe Kent, and full slate of live concerts. As a soloist and chamber musician, Ms. Andon has performed throughout the United States, Italy, France, England, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Greece and China including performances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, Merkin Hall (NYC), St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, CBS Sunday Morning, Universal Amphitheater, Hollywood Bowl and Walt Disney Hall in L.A. She has recently returned from a historic concert with the Macau Orchestra and we are so lucky and to have her in Los Angeles and with us for our anniversary gala. Ms. Andon will perform the American premiere of Georges Delerue's Academy Award-winning theme from A Little Romance. Don't miss Sara Andon performing with the GSPO on May 11, 2013 as part of Varèse Sarabande's historic concert gala!

If I don't get out there I'll have a spare ticket to give away if anyone wants it. It's like 2 or 3rd row on the right. Actually it's quite close to Morricone!

JOHN POWELL

Since HOW TO TRAIN MY DRAGON was a Varese release you can guess my choice for him that night. There was mentioned weekly announcements and there are still 9 weeks to go. So I am impressed and curious to see how long it will take before this concert sells out.


OMG!!! That is like a dream of mine to hear Mr. Powell conduct that score live!! I think I have to go!

also on the fence with this. keep me posted i guess as to the fate of this ticket as i am starting to snoop to see if i can get any cheap flights. i moved some stuff around to be in town for the old date for the elfman concert so kind of have a sour taste now that that concert was so uncerimoniously moved after i already spent some money and planned for it. so i'm down some cash but also left feeling empty as i won't be getting my concert fix for a 6 month interval or so!

I love this exchange at Steven Allen Fox's Facebook site after Giacchino was announced:


Comment:
This gala concert is getting out of hand! HAHAHA!

Steven Allen Fox:
Lol. Pretty cool

Varese Sarabande:
Just getting warmed up!

Steven Allen Fox will have McNeely, Navarro, Debney, Powell & Giacchino co-conduct and Varese says they are just getting warmed up.

No wonder tickets are selling like hotcakes!

Christopher Lennertz has just been added as 6th guest conductor!
I wonder if he will do one of his own works or honor Basil Poledouris or Michael Kamen (both of which he worked with for many years) ?

As someone already said this event is getting ridiculously fantastic.

What are you gonna do with 10 Golden State ties?

I still think it is cool you can get tickets 4 rows from the stage (albeit on the side).

Robert Townson's newest announcement is not only remarkably true but has clues to 3 new items being played that night:

Hollywood Bowl in front of over 10,000 people. Conducting their own music that night was a group of composers that today seems utterly beyond belief that they were ever assembled for a single concert. It happened once and was never repeated. It could never have been. Bernard Herrmann, Alfred Newman, Alex North, Miklós Rózsa, Elmer Bernstein, Dimitri Tiomkin, Henry Mancini, David Raksin, John Green and Nelson Riddle. Andy Williams and Mahalia Jackson sang, with Jack Benny as host.

I'm no Jack Benny, but four of the above composers will be represented at the Varèse Sarabande 35th Anniversary Concert Gala with the Golden State Pops Orchestra on May 11. That, and we'll add a few... music by Jerry Goldsmith, Georges Delerue, Joel McNeely, John Debney, Michael Giacchino, John Powell. And then some more. And more. And more still. None of us can go back in time to 1963 to attend the Bowl that magical September night. Do you have your ticket for May 11? Better hurry.[endqoute]

So far onlly North and SPARTACUS have been announced so it's 3 of the other composers. and I don't believe there has been a Nelson Riddle or John Green score released on Varese, so we can eliminate them. And I pretty much would be happy with anything from the composers that are left, especially because some cliche items (let's say Raksin's LAURA which is always played) have also never been released on Varese so it will be very different than is usually heard.

As usual these announcements are getting me way too excited, gotta watch my blood pressure.

Here is a question I've had that I'd thought I'd throw out here.
The only two film music giants I don't expect to show are Williams and Morricone. But since Varese has released many scores by them like THE COWBOYS and RED SONJA I wondered if their work is going to be represented?

Looks like Mark Isham has been added to the already impressive line up of conductors/composers who will be there celebrating VS's 35th Ann.!
