Everyone knows it’s the film score that makes the movie! So in keeping with our Silver Anniversary theme, KSS heads to the movie theatre and the silver screen. This concert brings you music with all the variety that goes with film: glorious, entertaining, inspiring, breathtaking, haunting, exciting, fun, passionate—it’s all here in Hot Hits of the Silver Screen.

“It’s astonishing to discover all the incredible choral music that has been part of the movies. Some composed specifically for a film and some composed earlier and used in a film. Some come to mind easily and some are completely surprising. From classics to recent Oscar winners, this concert brings some of the greatest film music together in one evening,” says KSS artistic director Karen Schuessler.

Supporting the Singers will be accompanist Grace Yip, percussionist Rob Larose with djembe, frame drum, and timpani, among others, and theatre organist Ross McDonald who will magically recreate the orchestral scores.
