Jeff Tyzik, conductor

Special pre-concert chat with Mark Watters begins one hour before each performance.

Principal Pops Conductor and Grammy Award-winner Jeff Tyzik takes his turn on the Philharmonics Series in Symphonic Cinema, a tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Featuring music from Casablanca, Psycho, and Star Wars among others, this carefully curated evening highlights some of the most monumental marriages of music and film. John Williams, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and Max Steiner are just three of the legendary Hollywood giants featured on this program.

Joining Maestro Tyzik for insightful and entertaining pre-concert chats in Kodak Hall one hour prior to each performance will be the director of Eastman School of Music’s Beal Institute for Film Music and Contemporary Media, Mark Watters. A six-time Emmy Award-winning composer and conductor as well, Watters’ vast resume includes music for motion pictures, television, DVD, video games, and special events such as the Olympics. Watters also oversees Eastman’s newly established Master of Music degree in Contemporary Media/Film Composition and teaches graduate courses.
