Hey ninjas,

I happen to be attending a Hans Zimmer event this summer and thought we'd add a thread. If we have another like this, just point me to it and I'll merge.

Have you guys been to such events where either favorite soundtracks are played by live orchestras, movies are accompanied by live orchestra or composers talk about their process?

Have fun!

Very cool

Not been to any but a mate went the same thing in London but for interstellar event and Michael Caine opened the event and gave a chat at the start. How cool is that

Film was playing on a huge screen in the background whilst hans did the live orchestra music - crazy and so cool

I also saw Hans Zimmer live in concert last year in my city. Theres no words to describe the experience, music and overall this whole concert. It was a dream come true!
In early 2016 we went to see Ennio Morricone also in my city. Same experience, no words can describe what I was feeling sitting there listening to the maestro and the orchestra :drool:

For this year we bought tickets for James Newton Howard, I think in November, in Dusseldorf. One of my girlfriends favorite OSTs is Blood Diamond by him so she's super excited :)

Nice! Yes, I am super excited to see Hans! I have also seen a Harry Potter film set to an orchestra and a few jazz performances that did renditions from film and tv scores.

Very cool to see them 2,

ahh I love Howard's nightcrawler OST. Just magnificent
