The California Symphony presents the beloved classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, and performs the complete, live orchestral accompaniment as the movie is shown on a giant screen at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, Friday, August 21 at 8:30 pm. Conductor Sarah Hicks leads the orchestra in some of the best-loved movie songs and music of all time, including Harold Arlen and E.Y. “Yip” Harburg’s “Over the Rainbow,” “We’re Off to See the Wizard,” “If I Only Had a Brain,” “Ding-Dong! The Witch is Dead,” “The Merry Old Land of Oz,” and many more, as well as the underscore by composer Herbert Stothart. Judy Garland and the other actors’ original vocal performances are preserved and enhanced, so they can be fully heard and enjoyed as the orchestra plays. The film’s restored images are accompanied by the orchestra playing entirely new transcriptions of Harold Arlen’s brilliant lost scores. The production is by Emmy Award-winning producer John Goberman (Live from Lincoln Center).
