Marvel Studios’ Black Panther in Concert
The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will present Marvel Studios’ Black Panther in Concert featuring a screening of the complete film with the musical score performed live to the film. The concert will be led by conductor Anthony Parnther.
In 2018, Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” quickly became a global sensation and cultural phenomenon, showing a new dimension of what Super Hero films could be. Rolling Stone raved, “The film lights up the screen with a full-throttle blast of action and fun. That’s to be expected. But what sneaks up and floors you is the film’s racial conscience and profound, astonishing beauty.” Now you can relive the excitement of T’Challa becoming king and battling Killmonger all while the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performs Ludwig Göransson’s Oscar® and Grammy®-winning score live to picture.
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Live in Concert is presented by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Anthony Parnther, and will be performed at Atlanta Symphony Hall on Friday, September 15 at 7:30pm, Saturday, September 16 at 7:00pm and Sunday, September 17 at 3:00pm.
