Hymns & Heroes from the Movies

Filed under Academic, Events on April 9, 2017.

Can you imagine your favorite epic film without a rousing musical score? Can you imagine the final lightsaber duel between Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Won Kenobi, and Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace without the pulse racing beat of the drums, the driving orchestrated energy coupled with the “war-cry” lyrics in the old Welsh tongue? We doubt it would be nearly as exhilarating!  Join the University of Florida Choral Union and the Gainesville Master Chorale as they  present Hymns and Heroes from the Movies on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Featuring a range of scores from blockbuster hero films you’ve come to know and love. Tickets are $10-$40 and can be purchased at www.performingarts.ufl.edu.
