The MSO Goes Back to the Future

This November, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will be taking the speed to 88mph, but where the MSO is going, there won’t be any need for roads when Back to the Future Live in Concert premieres in Melbourne.

“Great Scott” as Dr. Emmet Brown would say in the movie.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of the Back to the Future movie, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will be performing Alan Silvestri’s entire score from the classic film live, as the movie is projected on a large screen above the orchestra.

Audiences are also in for an extra-special treat, as composer Silvestri is writing and arranging approximately 15 minutes of brand new music for this special film-with-orchestra presentation.

Conductor Nicholas Buc said he was beyond excited to be performing the score to one of his all-time favourite films.

“This is a dream concert to be working on. I grew up with the Back to the Future trilogy, hoping for a real hoverboard to be released. “The music is so recognisable and familiar. This concert will certainly take many members of the audience back in time,” said Mr Buc.

Sign up to access early tickets before they go on general sale on Wednesday 4 March 2015.
