TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR GET OUT LIVE IN CONCERT AT THE KINGS THEATRE
Experience the groundbreaking, Academy Award®-winning thriller accompanied
by a live orchestral performance of Michael Abels’ brilliant score conducted by Darin Atwater of the National Symphony Orchestra
Brooklyn, NY – September 14, 2018 – Tickets are now on sale at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn for the live concert performance of Get Out – the revolutionary film from Universal Pictures and Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Jordan Peele. Coming October 28th, the film will be shown on the big screen as a live orchestra performs Michael Abels’ heart-pounding score, conducted by Darin Atwater of the National Symphony Orchestra.
In Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse and the mind of Jordan Peele, a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate and gradually becomes ensnared in a sinister plot, which is the real reason for his invitation.
In the liner notes of the original motion-picture soundtrack, Peele reflects on his collaboration with Abels and how they worked to conjure an unexpected new sound. He says “I envisioned distinctly Black voices harmonically creating an unnatural sound. The absence of hope. The void of the voiceless. A disembodied Negro spirit. The Sunken Place.”
As mentioned, conductor Darin Atwater will be at the baton for the Kings Theatre event. A wildly accomplished Washington D.C. native, Atwater’s career has also encompassed the roles of composer, pianist, record producer, artist, arranger, film composer, vocalist, entrepreneur, educator, and arts advocate. As a master inventor of musical hybrids, he has blended American pop, soul, Hip Hop, jazz, classical, and gospel music into many dazzling fusions, traversing virtually every medium, including records, live performance, radio, and television–literally reinventing the symphony orchestra in America.
Get Out, released by Universal Pictures in 2017, was nominated for four Academy Awards® and won for Best Original Screenplay. The film is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital.
