This once-in-a-lifetime world premiere concert event will bring the Oscar® nominated holiday classic to Orpheum Theatre, and will feature The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and choir performing every note from Alan Silvestri’s masterful score (with original songs co-written by Silvestri and Glen Ballard) while the entire film is projected on a 40-foot HD screen.
