Composer Alan Silvestri Connects With Chattanooga International Film Music Fest

Alan Silvestri, one of cinema’s most prolific composers, will serve as a special guest for the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera at the 2014 Chattanooga International Film Music Festival. The fest, which runs February 28 through March 2, offers a weekend of seminars with George S. Clinton (the fest’s artistic director) and Sundance Film Music Program director Peter Golub.

The fest will feature a screening of Back to the Future, and Silvestri will be on hand to talk about composing the Robert Zemeckis directed feature (Silvestri scored the entire BTF trilogy). “Hooray for Hollywood,” one of the concerts featured in the fest, will offer up Clinton’s Austin Powers suite as well as Silvestri’s Back to the Future suite. 

“The first orchestra I ever heard was the Chattanooga Symphony,” said Clinton, whose credits include the Emmy winning Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee and Tooth Fairy. “To be back in my hometown as an adult, collaborating with this wonderful orchestra, performing my music – well it doesn’t get much better than that.”

During his career, Silvestri has composed over 80 scores, with Forrest Gump, The Avengers, and most recently Red 2 as just a sampling of his resume (his score from Contact is a personal favorite.

Registration is currently open, and for more info, check out the following the fest’s official site.
