The Studio Orchestra at Florida State University is gearing up for the Second Annual Screen Spectacular on June 9, 2023, at 7:30 pm in Ruby Diamond Concert Hall. This highly-anticipated event is a family-friendly affair, featuring a unique collaboration between the College of Music Studio Orchestra and the College of Motion Picture Arts. Come as you are, or even in costume, to enjoy a night of fan-favorite media with live performances of some of the most iconic and beloved pieces from popular movies and video games like Final Fantasy, Avatar, How to Train Your Dragon, The Witcher 3, Space Invaders, and many more! Cheering is expected and encouraged.
The Studio Orchestra at FSU is an incubator program designed for students, by students. Founded 3 years ago, this orchestra gives hands-on opportunities in every aspect of the ensemble for students who are interested in administration, performance, conducting, composing, arranging, audio engineering, and mixing.
Through an exciting partnership with the College of Motion Picture Arts, the Studio Orchestra also celebrates aspiring filmmakers and composers. For the second year in a row, the Screen Spectacular will bring together student composers with student filmmakers to perform original films and compositions live for the audience. The films this year are two animated features: Loki’s Mistake (directed by Artemis Phipps, music by Marisa Meglino) and The Tale of Two Blades (directed by Alana Faby, music by Wood Simon).
In addition to the live music performances, the event will also feature video projections and other multimedia elements, creating an immersive and engaging experience for audience members of all ages. This makes it an excellent choice for families looking for a fun and unique night out. Whether you are a music lover, a film buff, or simply looking for a fun and entertaining night out, this Studio Orchestra performance is an event not to be missed.
Admission is free for FSU students, faculty, staff, and children; general admission tickets are $20 and may be purchased at tickets.music.fsu.edu.
