On Thursday, the Menomonee Falls High School String Orchestra will present its Annual Pops Concert. This year’s theme is, “A Night at the Movies”.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Menomonee Falls High School Auditorium and a $2 admission fee will be charged. The orchestra is under the direction of Mr. Steven Johnson.
The main attraction this year will be the performance of the musical score of a 20-minute Charlie Chaplin silent film, "The Adventurer." As the film plays, the orchestra will perform the score originally played by a single pianist in the 1920s.
Besides The Adventurer and other film scores, the orchestra will perform encore versions of the last two Pops Concerts closers; the “Halo Theme” as performed by Video Games Live and “Led Carmina”, a mashup of Led Zepplin’s “Kashmir” and “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff.
