The New York Pops takes on the role of the Hollywood studio orchestra, performing iconic themes from some of the biggest box office successes of the silver screen. From the lushly Romantic music of Korngold and Steiner that enlivened films of the 1930s and ’40s, to the evocative scores of a more recent time by Henry Mancini, Hans Zimmer, and others, you’ll be swept up in the excitement and shout hooray for Hollywood!
