Ah, the joys of summer — sunshine, long days, grilling on the patio — and movies.
It's time for the Summer Festival of American Film Music on The American Sound, plus a new podcast series devoted to film music.
SoundReels, Classical 101's film music podcast series, will take you into some of the most beautiful and compelling film scores, so you can see — and hear — what makes the music work with the visuals and story of each film. The four-part series will be available here on Wednesday, Aug. 1.
And all this month on The American Sound, during the Summer Festival of American Film Music, enjoy music from the award-winning scores for the films featured in each episode of SoundReels: The Magnificent Seven, The Red Violin, Lawrence of Arabia and West Side Story.
During The American Sound's Summer Festival of American Film Music, Jon Sherman, associate professor of film at Kenyon College and frequent commentator at Central Ohio film events, will share his insights into the world of movies as guest co-host of SoundReels.
Please join me for Classical 101's Summer Festival of American Film Music all this month on The American Sound, Saturdays at 6 p.m. and Tuesdays at 7 p.m. on Classical 101. Find Classical 101 Podcasts here.
