Montage: Great Film Composers and the Piano chronicles what happened when celebrated pianist Gloria Cheng challenged the world's greatest film composers - Williams, Newman, Giacchino, Broughton, Desplat and Davis - to write original pieces for solo piano. No movie. No orchestra. Be a fly on the wall for these once-in-a-lifetime recording sessions as we get to see these titans of film music like we've never seen them before.
Join Halifax-born filmmaker Ben Proudfoot and Grammy-winning pianist Gloria Cheng for an intimate one-night-only engagement celebrating film, music, and everything in between. The screening and performance will be followed by a Q&A period moderated by Proudfoot.
Ticket sales from this event will support filmmaking and music-making in our community: proceeds will go to the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative and the Halifax Music Co-op.
