As part of the Audi Pops series, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and
conductor Richard Kaufman will present the world concert premiere of music
from the film It Came From Outer Space (Herman Stein, Irving Gertz, and
Henry Mancini). The selections from this 1953 science-fiction classic
have been carefully reconstructed by orchestrator Kathleen Mayne. The
Halloween-themed concerts are scheduled for October 26-28, 2001, in the
Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas. Featured guest artists will be Texas
thereminist Robert Froehner and DSO organist Mary Preston. The program
also features the Southwest concert premiere of music from ED WOOD (Howard
Shore) as well as selections from JURASSIC PARK (Williams), PSYCHO
(Herrmann), TWILIGHT ZONE-THE MOVIE (Goldsmith), ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES
(Shaiman), E.T.-THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL (Williams), and THE GHOST AND MRS.
MUIR (Herrmann). Classically macabre works by Saint-Säens, Khachaturian,
and Kabalevsky round out the program. For tickets or more information
