CineConcerts announces a once-in-a-lifetime live concert event: the 25th anniversary celebration of Rudy In Concert, live at the historic Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on November 10th, 2018. Conducted by Justin Freer, the 80-piece Hollywood Chamber Orchestra will perform Oscar and Emmy-winning composer Jerry Goldsmith's complete score live while the entire film is projected on a massive 40-foot HD screen. This 1993 American biographical sports film's first live concert premiere will help raise funds for The University of Notre Dame and regional Southern California high schools with support from The CineConcerts Foundation. Special guests including Sean Astin, Rudy Ruettiger, director David Anspaugh, writer Angelo Pizzo, producer Cary Woods and more will take part in a pre-show on-stage panel to discuss the film, music, and the magic of the story 25 years later. Pre-sale will be from September 24-28, with public on-sale on September 28, 10AM at http://axs.com/rudyinconcert.
Rudy In Concert has been created by CineConcerts, in partnership with Sony Pictures. Justin Freer, President of CineConcerts and Producer/Conductor of Rudy In Concert, explains, "Rudy has captured the hearts and minds of millions around the world. Celebrating this amazing film and iconic music score with an 80-piece symphony orchestra playing the score live to picture will both excite and bring tears of joy to audiences everywhere."
Brady Beaubien, co-founder and CineConcerts Producer, adds, "Jerry Goldsmith's incredible music brings to life the film's heart, raw excitement, and internal battle by creating the continual sensation that Rudy's struggle feels like it is our own. We feel privileged to bring this film concert experience to Los Angeles, where countless movie dreams are born and where the score was also written."
