Four Symphony Orchestras Perform “Phantom of the Opera” with a New Score by Craig Safan

Performed Live-To-Picture by the York Symphony, the Yakima Symphony, the Heartland Symphony, and the Eastern Illinois Symphony!

I’m thrilled that orchestras are performing this wonderful film.  I was able to attend the performance of the York Symphony in York, PA and they did a great job.  Not only were the musicians excellent, but they also had a 20-member female choir.  What a thrill!

Dragon’s Domain Records Releases “Over Her Dead Body”

This is one of my favorite lesser-known scores.  The movie takes place in the Southwest and has a score with lots of dobro, accordion, rock guitar, and a small band.  It’s a dark comedy starring Elizabeth Perkins and Judge Reinhold.  It was a lot of fun to compose and record with some great musicians.

Now available on all streaming sites as well as on CD.

Marina Del Rey Symphony Performs “Phantom of the Opera”

Commissioned by the Marina Del Rey Symphony, Craig Safan’s new score to the classic Lon Chaney film “The Phantom of the Opera” was performed in Chace Park to an audience of over 1,000 music and film lovers.  The music was played by the 65-piece orchestra plus vocalists and, of course, a very loud theater organ.
