EMPIRE TRIO presents ‘Hooray for Hollywood: 100 Years of Musical Magic’, a musical revue of some of the most beloved and celebrated songs from the Silver Screen, covering classics from the 1920s to the present day.

You’ll be dazzled by lively classics such as “Good Morning,” “Accentuate the Positive,” and “Get Happy,” and you’ll be beguiled by timeless love ballads like “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” and “Moon River.” The audience will be invited to join in on certain classic songs such as “As Time Goes By.” Movies represented in this show include “Casablanca,” “The Sound of Music,” “James Bond Theme Songs,” “Titanic,” “The Wizard of Oz” and many more. The show is peppered with fascinating stories about the legendary singers who performed the songs, from Judy Garland, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra, to Céline Dion and Barbra Streisand. While most of the show will be sung as solos, duets and trios with sublime piano accompaniment, you’ll also hear instrumental performances, such as the haunting “Theme from Schindler’s List” performed on the violin and piano. This show truly is a uniquely presented glamorous soundtrack of the greatest movie music of all time!

EMPIRE TRIO is one of the most critically acclaimed and versatile classical crossover groups on tour today, featuring the exceptionally beautiful voices of Erin Shields and Adam Cannedy and the virtuosic multi-instrumental talent of the incredible David Shenton.
