CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra will present “Home Alone in Concert,” a film with live orchestra, at the Cheyenne Civic Center in December.
“A true holiday favorite, this beloved comedy classic features renowned composer John Williams’ charming and delightful score performed live by the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Maestro William Intriligator, as the film is projected on a giant screen,” a press release stated. “This very special performance for the whole family is brought to you by Ken Garff Toyota.”
In addition to a large orchestra, the score also calls for a huge choir. CSO will be joined for the performances by All-City Children’s Chorus; members of the Cheyenne Central, East and South High School choirs; and some community choir members.
“’Home Alone’ is one of my family’s favorite movie franchises. Little did I know, while watching these films over the years with my boys, that I would one day have the opportunity to conduct the full soundtrack. This is one of the funniest family holiday movies, and the music greatly adds to the film — especially the scenes where young Kevin is battling the two moronic thieves,” Intriligator said.
Following the success of its first film with live orchestra — Raiders of the Lost Ark in Concert in 2021 — Cheyenne Symphony leadership dreamed of being able to do it again, not just for the community and audiences, but also for the orchestra.
“It presents incredible artistic challenges and rewards for our musicians to play a dynamic film soundtrack in perfect sync with the movie. Performing a film with live orchestra is a huge and exciting undertaking! I’m so proud of this orchestra and the entire organization for being able to present this incredible spectacle,” Intriligator said.
The Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra has planned two shows, one at 7 p.m. Dec. 9 and one at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 10. Tickets will cost $12 for students and $25 to $55 for adults. Visit cheyennesymphony.org or call 307-778-8561 for information.
