Conductors got their name by both guiding orchestras and wielding copper batons that deflect lightning away from the brass section. Behold an electrifying performance with this GrouponLive deal to see Pirates of the Caribbean – The Curse of the Black Pearl as played by the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra at Florence Baptist Church at Mount Zion. For $39, you get two tickets for seating in Section A on Saturday, October 13, at 2 p.m. (up to an $80 value, including all fees). The box office opens at 1 p.m.
From the moment it burst onto the silver screen in 2003, Pirates of the Caribbean – The Curse of the Black Pearl was a hit, spawning three more films and several Academy Award nominations. On October 13, audiences can watch the swashbuckling adventure to a live performance of Klaus Badelt’s and Hans Zimmer’s sweeping score, as commanded by the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra. The in-the-flesh instrumentation further elevates the film’s many thrills and chills. Screeching violins push the heroes toward the plank, and menacing horns and timpani herald the arrival of an army of skeleton buccaneers during “Underwater March.” With the film’s soundtrack closer to their ears than ever, spectators may feel compelled to hoot for Captain Jack Sparrow as he duels with the villainous Captain Barbossa and frantically reapplies his eyeliner.
Kentucky Symphony Orchestra
Many symphony orchestras take themselves very seriously. And while Kentucky Symphony Orchestra is consummately professional, they also regale audiences with unconventional performances that may involve silent films, comedians, country bands, and Civil War–battle reenactments, a formula that has worked for the past 21 seasons.
