SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Who you gonna call? The Utah Symphony.
KLS TV’s adventure specialist Trace Worthington was at Abravanel Hall to find out about the Utah Symphony’s “Ghostbusters in Concert,” where the orchestra will perform Elmer Bernstein’s classic score while the movie plays on screen.
Peter Bernstein, Elmer’s son, will be guest-conducting.
“To be able to bring (Elmer’s music) back after so many years is just wonderful,” Peter told Trace. “It’s an opportunity I thought I would never have.”
“I love every minute of this,” he added.
Trace also caught up with Renée Huang, the director of communications for the Utah Symphony.
“This is part of our films and concerts series, where we have a blockbuster film on the big screen while the Utah Symphony sits underneath and plays … the score live as you’re watching the movie,” she said. “So it’s a pretty big deal.”
On hand for the performances will be the fan club Ghostbusters of Salt Lake, who will be present with full gear in the lobby both nights.
The fan club is serious business, with all the members sporting movie-accurate costumes and props. One club member even has his own Ectomobile, signed by Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson.
Concert-goers are encouraged to dress up as well and enter in the costume contest.
Renée said people can dress up in kid, adult or group categories, and cosplay judges from FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention will be there to decide the winners.
The contests will take place from 5:30 – 6:45 p.m. and the concerts will begin at 7 p.m. Go to utahsymphony.org for tickets and additional information.
