“Every time I walk into a movie theatre, I’m transported the moment the lights first flicker on the silver screen,” stated SFGMC Artistic Director Jacob Stensberg. “I’m carried away by the story, the acting and cinematography but as a musician, I’m always aware of the ingenious music that underlies the action on screen and provides the emotion needed to make the scene complete. I know audiences will love SFGMC’s unique perspective on some of this music and will hear these beloved songs in a brand new way.”
SFGMC was founded in 1978 and remains committed as a “steadfast beacon of hope.”
Drag Me to the Movies! runs 1 hour, 30 minutes and seating is reserved.
