The Phoenix Symphony, conducted by Randall Craig Fleischer, accompanies this feature film live, bringing the iconic classical score to life with hits like the title song “Singin’ in the Rain,” and others such as “Make ‘Em Laugh,” “Fit as a Fiddle,” and “You Were Meant for Me” sprinkled throughout this classic March 14 (7:30 p.m.) and 15 (2 p.m.) at Symphony Hall.

John Goberman, best known as the creator of “Live from Lincoln Center,” is the producer of “Symphonic Cinema,” performing 20th century symphonic works composed for film and orchestra, consisting of the film classics with exceptional scores. Goberman notes “Singin’ in the Rain is one of the truly great musicals, no question about it. It’s remarkable in that it’s entertaining all the way through. It’s a classic film, but it also has a whole contemporary feeling. It’s a lot of fun; a lot of laughs.”

Audiences are in for a treat as the orchestra performs the film’s classic score, written by Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown, live.

Tickets start at $18 and can be purchased by calling the box office at 602-495-1999 or online at phoenixsymphony.org.
