In BC (before COVID) times, ASO performed some pretty cool movie-themed concert series. Harry Potter and Star Wars were two you may remember. Both were standout performances by the way.

Well, I have awesome news. As part of the Spring Serenades concert series, ASO will stream Cinematic Strings, Conducted by Chris Confessore, from Friday, April 23 through Sunday, May 2.

The virtual concert features selections from some of the most popular movies of all time like Beauty and the Beast, Pyscho, Titanic and more.
