Jeff Beal and The Boston Symphony Orchestra come together to record BOSTON

Members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra will record the soundtrack to BOSTON, the first-ever full-length documentary film about the Boston Marathon, arguably the world’s most prestigious running race. Emmy Award-winning composer Jeff Beal—perhaps best known for his score to the Netflix hit series House of Cards—composed the soundtrack to BOSTON, and will conduct the BSO players in the soundtrack recording at Boston’s Symphony Hall on Monday, February 13, 2017.

The BSO has never performed a work by Beal, and this occasion will mark his first time conducting the orchestra. Due to a BSO concert the evening of Monday, April 15, the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra will perform the full score live at the world premiere of BOSTON at the Wang Center, hosted by WBZ-TV and featuring anchors Lisa Hughes and David Wade. A portion of every ticket sold to the world premiere will help support Martin’s Park, named in honor of Martin Richard, who was eight years old when he was tragically killed on April 15, 2013 on Boylston Street. Martin’s Park is set to be build in Boston along the Fort Point Channel in 2017.               For further details about the world premiere of BOSTON, which is sponsored by John Hancock, click here.

The BSO has previously recorded three movie soundtracks at Symphony Hall: Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan with composer and conductor John Williams in 1998, and Mystic River composed by Clint Eastwood, orchestrated by Pat Hollenbeck, and conducted by Lennie Neuhaus in 2003.
