The screening of Jurassic Park with the soundtrack played live by the OBC opens the OBCPOPS season

Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster film featuring the famous original soundtrack by John ‎Williams, will be shown at L’Auditori on 11, 12 and 13 October

The OBCPOPS series kicks off this season, offering a different way to listen to and enjoy the ‎Barcelona Symphony Orchestra. The first concert will feature the showing of Steven ‎Spielberg’s Jurassic Park on the big screen, with a live performance of the soundtrack from ‎composer John Williams by the OBC, conducted by Anthony Gabriele. The event will take ‎place on 11, 12 and 13 October in Pau Casals Hall 1.‎

Jazz, musicals and more soundtracks round off a programme for all ‎audiences

The next OBCPOPS event will be in November with jazz legend Brad Mehldau and the OBC, a ‎co-commission with institutions such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Luxembourg ‎Philharmonic and the London Jazz Festival, as part of the celebrations for the 50th anniversary ‎of the Barcelona Jazz Festival. ‎

A December highlight is the 100 Years of Bernstein and the American Musical programme, in ‎which the OBC will revisit the music of this wonderful composer, filling the stage with light, ‎colour, rhythm, tenderness and good humour. The series will be rounded off with the film ‎The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, also featuring a live soundtrack performance.‎
