Poindexter HallCOLUMBUS, Miss. – Music and movie fans will get the best of both worlds at a program hosted on campus Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in Connie Sills Kossen Auditorium, Poindexter Hall.


The Department of Music at The W and the MSU Philharmonia are collaborating to bring family and friends together for “Listen to the Movies,” which will include theme music from some of the most well-known movies and television series.

Performed by the MSU Philharmonia, music chosen for the show performance will span from 1944 to present day. Music from movie titles “The Fellowship of the Ring,” “Pride and Prejudice,” “Game of Thrones” and many more will be highlighted. Clips and pictures from these favorites will be streaming while the orchestra performs. 

The show also will feature Mississippi State University students and faculty soloists. Their newly acquired Hubbard and Broekman harpsichord, which is a French double-manual that was modeled on a historic instrument built in Paris in 1769 by Pascal Taskin, will be premiered.

Dr. Richard Human, MSU music director, said, “This will be Philharmonia’s first performance away from Starkville and we hope that the pieces selected will be pleasing for movie lovers of all ages.”

This is one of several cultural events The W’s Department of Music has planned for the spring semester. The event is free and open to the public.
