JEFF BOWN PRODUCTIONS LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA CONDUCTED BY JERRY GOLDSMITH GAYLORD ENTERTAINMENT CTR SUN APR 28 2002 6:00PM
London Symphony Orchestra performs Hollywood film scores. Tickets start at $24.00.
ALL RIGHT WHO'S GOT CONNECIONES!
Tickets run to $337.50 and at this moment I have every intention of making my way up there but I'd hate to travel 700 miles for an evening in the $24 nosebleed section.
ALMS--ALMS FOR THE POOR!
Is anybody there? Does anybody care? The way I figure it's either a flight into Nashville or into Atlanta & then a drive, like 250 miles. Piece o' cake. Sounds like fun. Dickinson, get your fallopian tubes down here, we're finally, FINALLY gonna meet and then go see Jerry!
So, Mr. Cleveland wants to play dueling threads! But the price most certainly is obscene for us po' li'l film music folks (I mean he says $337.25, I say $337.50; brother can you spare 2 bits?). Hmmmmmm...Cleveland, Kinsinger, Howard L...Dickinson, this sounds familiar...I got it! Let's kidnap JG for a front-row ransom. Where's Swashbuckler?
LOL This is from A Heart At Fire's Center. It took place around 1956:
The four LSO concerts at Festival Hall were far less convivial. Insecure and defensive on his London concert tour, Herrmann was not the genial scholar he had been during his Hitchcock visit, but an argumentative pedant. During one rehearsal the symphony's soft-spoken oboist raised his hand with a question. "Mr. Herrmann, my part is penciled in mezzoforte, but it's only penciled in. Do you wish me to observe it?
"SURE I do," barked Herrmann. "Whaddaya want it in, NEON?"
I want to go, but I don't want to drive all the way from Tupelo, Mississippi to Nashville by myself. Is there anyone going that lives close to me... Tupelo is in the Northeast part of Mississippi. Memphis is just an hour and a half away, so I'm talking about fellow Goldsmith fans from Lousiana, Mississippi, Western Memphis, Alabama, or Arkansas.
