The orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Steven Allen Fox, will also be joined by the SoCal Chorale led by Choir Maestra Marya Basaraba.

The concert will feature suites from many of the late composer’s critically acclaimed film scores including The Blue Lagoon, The Hunt for Red October, Free Willy and more. Special presenters and guest conductors will include composers John Debney, John Frizzell, John Ottman, Christopher Lennertz, and filmmakers Randal Kleiser (Blue Lagoon), Paul Verhoeven (RoboCop, Starship Troopers), John Milius (Conan The Barbarian, Red Dawn), and surprise guests. The concert also marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Conan: The Barbarian. Tickets available at www.MusicCenter.org.
