“More slime!”, never has an orchestra conductor asked for…or have they? Playing the music score live to the movie Ghostbusters is “on hand” this week! The music composed by Elmer Bernstein is not filled with melodies but sound effects and his son is conducting Orchestra KY at this world premier. It’s not a new idea for orchestras to perform the score as the movie is viewed by nostalgic audiences but it’s great for the smaller city of Bowling Green, KY to land the opportunity. The ghosts of the 1980’s are up to shenanigans this week and that is my era!! Who doesn’t love the 80’s? Sometimes a musician’s work is sticky as we are cued in to play our part.
