Back by popular demand, the Cleveland Orchestra announces “At the Movies” with three concerts scheduled for the 2014-2014 season. Featured this coming season will be “Phantom of the Opera”, “Disney’s Fantasia” and Alfred Hitchcock’s classic “Vertigo”. All three movies will be projected on a giant screen above the Severance Hall stage with musical accompaniment performed live. The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2014-15 Celebrity Series is sponsored by PNC Bank.

Tuesday, October 28, 2014 will be the screening of the 1925 classic horror film “Phantom of the Opera” with organist Todd Wilson accompanying the film with selections of improvised music on the mighty Norton Memorial Organ, considered one of the finest concert organs ever built. Discover the magic of Disney on Thursday, December 11, 2014 as the Cleveland Orchestra (conducted by Brett Mitchell) performs the soundtrack for “Fantasia”. Brett Mitchell returns with the Orchestra on Friday, February 13, 2014 to add the rich and seductive score of Bernard Herrmann to Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo”.

“PNC Bank is proud to sponsor The Cleveland Orchestra's 2014-15 Celebrity Series,” says Paul Clark, regional president of PNC Bank. “We are delighted for the opportunity to support these concerts so that the whole of the Northeast Ohio community can have the opportunity to experience three very special nights ‘at the movies’ partnered with such world-renowned musicians in the magnificence of Severance Hall.”

“The Orchestra’s Celebrity Series has been a tremendous success,” comments Ross Binnie, chief marketing officer of The Cleveland Orchestra, “and we are extraordinarily pleased to welcome PNC Bank as sponsor for these popular concerts. This series is an essential part of our commitment to play more music for more people each and every year, and by presenting these great movies on the big screen with the excitement of live musical accompaniment, we provide yet another unique kind of concert excitement for our audiences in a way only The Cleveland Orchestra can.”

The popular “At the Movies” program began in 2009 as a three concert series that featured popular programming with the Cleveland Orchestra and has consistently sold out. Each season offers a variety of musical styles from classical orchestrial music, to popular movie scores to jazz.
