There’s a special magic to a film viewed on a large screen in HD with live orchestra.

A Beautiful New Film about a Louisville Tradition

Teddy and the LO perform Jeux, evocative ballet music by French composer Claude Debussy to accompany a world-premiere film. Documentary filmmakers Dennis Scholl and Marlon Johnson collaborated with Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory to create a 19-minute documentary about the famed baseball bat, which is titled Les Outils du Jeu  (“Tools of the Game”).

21 Classical Masterpieces Woven into a New Film Score

Together with musical colleagues Nate Farrington and Sebastian Chang, Teddy Abrams creates a NEW MUSICAL SCORE for the classic 1925 epic silent film Battleship Potemkin. Tapping into a “greatest hits” of traditional classical music, the new score includes masterpieces of Bach, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mahler and many others. Join us for an adventure as two powerful artforms come together for one amazing evening.
