MEREDITH — Thanks to the the generosity of E. M. Heath from Center Harbor, the Lakes Region Symphony orchestra (LRSO) will be performing a very lively Pops Concert in May featuring music from the movies. This last concert of the season will be held at the Inter-Lakes High School Auditorium on Saturday, May 16 at 7:30 p.m.
Down memory lane there will be songs performed by Marvin Hamlisch including: "If You Remember Me", "The Entertainer", and "What I Did For Love". The composer Irving Berlin gave us "There's No Business Like Show Business", "Say It With Music", and "Alexander's Ragtime Band". Also included will be that very romantic theme song from the movie Summer of '42.
No film music Pops Concert would be complete without including many of John Williams' compositions. These include a musical tribute to John Williams, his very familiar "Cowboys Overture", and a piece from Schindler's List featuring Margaret Hopkins on violin.
Finally, who has a long history of making film magic but the Disney dynasty. A musical tribute to Disney will go back years to movies and music you will remember from decades ago. More recently, the Pirates of the Caribbean will get you jumping in your seats. And finally, a medley of songs from Disney's very popular new movie "Frozen" will bring you up to the present.
Ticket prices: $15 for adults and $8 for students. Tickets: online at www.LRSO.org/tickets or at the following outlets: Innisfree Bookshop and the Mobil station across from the town docks in Meredith: Greenlaw's Music in Laconia,: Baywater books in Center Harbor.
