The holidays are a great time to catch up on all our favorite movies, and many of these films wouldn’t enjoy the popularity they do without their amazing soundtracks! Today on One Symphony, we want to share with you some of our Holiday Film Score favorites! Join conductor Devin Patrick Hughes as he explores some classical films scores including Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas from Meet Me in St. Louis, Gremlins by Jerry Goldsmith, Home Alone by John Williams, and Danny Elfman's Nightmare Before Christmas. Along the way we explore how these mammoth scores were influences by composers and works like Aaron Copland, Hector Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Kurt Weill, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Franz Schubert, and many more!
