Reel MusicBy Richard Hopkins, Rebecca Hopkins, and Sarah Durham. Musical Arrangements by Jim Prosser
From silent films and movie musicals to Casablanca and The Greatest Showman, the silver screen transports us to places and times we dream about. Reel Music celebrates the movies that helped create the soundtrack to the last century, with classics like “Singing in the Rain,” “Circle of Life,” and “My Heart Will Go On.” This lively music revue reminds us that movies and music have always gone hand in hand.
