Baby penguins, the Seattle Symphony and the voice of Morgan Freeman – there’s not a more potent cocktail for instant happiness (not a legal one anyway). The Symphony will perform the score of March of the Penguins while the Oscar-winning documentary is shown on the big screen at Benaroya Hall. Follow emperor penguins on their harrowing (and occasionally adorable) trek to ancestral breeding grounds in the icy Antarctic. Alex Wurman’s evocative score is the perfect companion for this truly epic journey of waddling steps, belly flops and merry mischief. Hollywood veteran Jeffrey Schindler, who conducted the original recording of the film’s score, now leads the Symphony in this cinematic treat.
