Texarkana Symphony - film scores and Beethoven No. 7 September 25-2010

This Saturday night September 25, 7:30 PM at the Perot Theatre in downtown Texarkana, TSO opens its season with Beethoven Symphony No. 7 and three John Williams film scores - Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Starwars. Quite a combination I might add. (Give us a break, maestro!) Should any of you ask the brass players they'll tell you it's a real lip basher. First there's the pain and afterwards just numbness!!! Until next time, of course.
