Danny Elfman has scored 15 movies by Tim Burton, starting with “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” in 1985 and leading up to last year’s “Dark Shadows” and “Frankenweenie.” For the first time in the U.S., Elfman is to present his scores for Burton’s films in an orchestral concert performance, scheduled appropriately enough for Halloween night at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.
Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton will feature conductor John Mauceri leading the 87-piece Hollywood Symphony Orchestra and the 45-member Page L.A. Choir. Elfman himself will appear at the concert to perform songs from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. on Oct. 31 at the Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live. Tickets go on sale Sept. 13 at 10 a.m. through AXS.com and by phone at (888) 929-7849.
