The Sound of his Music
Do you ever watch a film and find yourself on the edge of your seat, not because what’s happening on the screen is all that scary, but because the music itself puts you on edge? A film’s soundtrack can make or break a film and tells a story of all it’s own. This summer at Lichfield we’ll be celebrating those iconic musical soundtracks, from ‘Forrest Gump’ to ‘Pink Panther’, as a part of our ‘BBC Concert Orchestra: Friday Night is Music Night’ event.
As well as this, we’ll be celebrating the works of Richard Rodgers, who composed, along with Oscar Hammerstein, the music for musicals such as ‘Carousel’, ‘South Pacific’, ‘The King and I’ and ‘The Sound of Music’. In honour of our event ‘The Sound of his Music: A Celebration of Richard Rodgers’, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite Rodgers songs! Read on to find out what we’ll be listening out for on the 8th July!
