May 17: New Century Chamber Orchestra at Osher Marin JCC

There is no greater director-composer partnership in the history of cinema, with the possible exception of Fellini and Rota, than that of Alfred Hitchcock and Bernard Herrmann. Before their falling out over the score to Torn Curtain in 1966, and Hitchcock’s ruthless dismissal of his co-conspirator in suspense, Herrmann had written 10 years of iconic film music. Among his best-known theme is Psycho, to be performed in a program, titled “Shadows and Light,” this weekend by the New Century Chamber Orchestra. In a program exploring the fears and fevers of the night, including Borodin’s Nocturne, Strauss’ Die Fledermaus and Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” director and violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg premieres Clarice Assad’s new commissioned work Dreamscape. Get lost in the stars on Sunday, May 17, at Osher Marin Jewish Community Center. 200 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael. 5pm. $32–$54. 707.357.1111.Gabe Meline
