Film soundtrack lovers will want to show up in September for the Maestro of the Movies concerts, featuring composers John Williams and David Newman conducting some of their most famous themes, performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic (Sept 3, 4 and 5). The LA Phil will also tackle live performances of the scores of The Princess Bride (July 31) and Black Panther (Sept 10, 11 and 12). Plus, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra will perform the score for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Sept 17) and actress Melissa Peterman will host the traditional Sound of Music sing-along (Aug 21).
