· It’s early, early days but Ghostbusters fans rejoice because Sony has announced there are going to be a series of Ghostbusters In Concert events all around the world. That’s multiple screenings of the 1984 cult classic complete with a live orchestral accompaniment and of course, the iconic “Ghostbusters” theme song by Ray Parker Jr. in full swing. Yeah, that’s pretty damn cool.” – Steffanie Tan, Pedestrian.tv

· “[Elmer] Bernstein eloquently communicates the film’s apocalyptic climax, but it’s the quieter, comedic moments where Ghostbusters truly sings. His melodies beautifully complement the wit and creativity of the onscreen narrative.” – Jason Ankeny, AllMusic


OVERVIEW

From Schirmer Theatrical, experience Ivan Reitman’s two-time Oscar® and two-time Golden Globe-nominated film, screened live as an orchestra performs Elmer Bernstein’s Grammy-nominated score and Ray Parker Jr.’s Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping theme song, “Ghostbusters.”

Bring your proton pack and join the original paranormal investigation and elimination team as they capture their first ghost, Slimer, and encounter their first god of destruction, Gozer the Gozerian! Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis as eccentric parapsychologists who start a ghost-catching business in New York City after their careers in academia go awry. The film’s co-stars include Sigourney Weaver as the Ghostbusters’ first client turned Gatekeeper, Rick Moranis as an accountant turned Keymaster, and Ernie Hudson as the Ghostbusters’ first recruit.

Peter Bernstein, son of the Academy Award®-winning composer and an orchestrator for the film, joined Schirmer Theatrical’s creative team in reconstructing Elmer Bernstein’s brilliant score. Ghostbusters in Concert includes the film, complete score and parts, along with a conductor video with punches, streamers and click track. Production travels with a Technical Director, and a full technical rider is available upon request.

Ghostbusters in Concert is presented under license from Sony Pictures and Ghost Corps. The music is provided by G. Schirmer, Inc. under license from EMI Golden Torch Music Corp and Raydiola Music.
