PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — This Thanksgiving weekend, the Philadelphia Orchestra will play the score of the holiday classic “Home Alone” as audiences hear and see the film on the big screen.
The score, composed by the legendary John Williams, advances the popular story of a young Kevin McCallister who accidentally found himself home alone at Christmas to defend his home from burglars.
Conductor Constantine Kitsopoulos will conduct the orchestra and the choirs and the College of New Jersey will sing along.
You can also hear details of the music that can go unnoticed by just watching the movie.
“When you sit at home and watch these movies, the musical soundtrack is mixed behind the dialogue and sound effects so you miss little nuances,” said Jeremy Rothman, chief programming officer of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Kimmel Center, Inc.
Home Alone is part of a series of films starring the Philadelphia Orchestra.
In December they play “The Muppet Christmas Carol” and in March “Black Panther”.
“You may love watching these films with your immediate family and friends, but seeing it in the concert hall with the Philadelphia Orchestra and thousands of people laughing and cheering is a very special experience,” says Rothman.
The Philadelphia Orchestra will perform “Home Alone” November 25-27 at the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall.
