The Houston Symphony will treat thrill-seeking audiences to a bone-chilling cinematic experience on Halloween weekend with a big-screen showing of American thriller Psycho while the iconic score is performed live. Friday, October 27, 2017, at 7:30pm at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, in Houston’s Theater District
Featuring one of the most iconic scenes in film history – the infamous shower scene – Alfred Hitchcock’s suspense thriller Psycho revolutionized the horror film genre, leading to critical acclaim and four Academy Award nominations including Best Supporting Actress for Janet Leigh and Best Director for Hitchcock.
Bernard Herrmann’s bone-chilling score and music built around strings creates the perfect suspense and brings the film and scenes frighteningly alive. John Goberman, the creator and producer of film and concert presentations, adds “the screech of the violins is real and the drip of the shower drain going down the double basses make you glad you are just watching. This concert presentation of this great film is a unique experience for both the orchestra and the audience.”
Francesco Lecce-Chong will conduct this special screening.
