King of Kings Concert for Holy Week

April 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The LCPC Chancel Choir and Orchestra will present in concert the original scores from three classic films, including the Miklos Rozsa score from the epic “King of Kings,” the title song from “Chariots of Fire” by Vangelis and the Ennio Morricone’s “Gabriel’s Oboe” from “The Mission.”  Accompanying the musical performance will be film excerpts in HD on the church’s super screens. The concert will be presented in-person in the church’s sanctuary and livestreamed – see details below.

Prior to the concert at 1 p.m. in LCPC’s Worship Arts Center and online, eminent film historian, Dr. Daniel Robbins, will discuss “Music in the Movies” using examples from the work of Miklos Rozsa and other film composers.  Dr, Robbins has studied film scoring with Miklos Rozsa, David Raksin and Henry Mancini. Tirelessly promoting Classic Hollywood motion picture music, Dr. Robbins instituted courses in film music at multiple Southern California colleges and universities, including Cypress College, Golden West College, and Chapman University, where it served cinema students engaged in the actual film making process. Additionally, he has given numerous public lectures on the many fascinating aspects of motion picture scoring across the U.S.

In addition to the film music excerpts, the concert features the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams including his “O Clap Your Hands” and his Easter setting of “Five Mystical Songs” with eminent operatic baritone soloist, Gabriel Manro.  The concert is free. La Canada Presbyterian Church is located at 626 Foothill Blvd.  Masking and proof of full vaccination are required for everyone attending LCPC concerts as well as all staff and artists working the events.  For further information, call the church office at (818) 790-6708 or visit lacanadapc.org.
