Past Monday, February 13th, composer Jeff Beal conducted the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) at the Symphony Hall to record his soundtrack to ‘BOSTON’, the first-ever full-length documentary film about the Boston Marathon.
Directed and produced by award winning filmmaker/marathoner Jon Dunham and produced by Academy Award nominee Megan Williams, the film chronicles the world’s most famous marathon.
A couple of months later, Saturday April 15th at 8:00 p.m., the documentary and its music played live by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra conducted by Jeff Beal, will premiere in Boston at the Boch Center Wang Theatre.
Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. for the event named “BOSTON – The World Premiere” – a live show hosted by WBZ-TV, featuring anchors Lisa Hughes and David Wade and sponsored by John Hancock Financial.
Tickets for the World Premiere are limited and are be available since Saturday, February 4, 2017 at http://www.bochcenter.org/, by calling 800-982-2787, or by visiting the Boch Center Box Office (270 Tremont Street, Boston, MA).
A portion of every ticket sold to the world premiere will help support Martin’s Park, named in honor of Martin Richard, who was eight years old when he was tragically killed on April 15, 2013 when the Boston Marathon bombings happened.
The Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) has previously recorded three movie soundtracks at Symphony Hall: Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan with composer and conductor John Williams in 1998, and Mystic River composed by Clint Eastwood, orchestrated by Pat Hollenbeck, and conducted by Lennie Neuhaus in 2003.
