Friday To-Do: 'Mancini and Moonlight'

Posted By on Fri, Feb 13, 2009 at 11:47 AM



‘MANCINI AND MOONLIGHT'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $17-$72.

For Valentine's weekend, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra mines the catalog of Henry Mancini, the master of the film and TV score. In a career that spanned four decades, Mancini won four Oscars and 20 Grammys (he was nominated for 72!). The ASO, with help from Broadway singers Rosena Hill and Edward Watts, reviews some of Mancini's most famous compositions, many of them written with Johnny Mercer. They're songs you should know by heart: the theme from “Pink Panther,” “Baby Elephant Walk,” “Moon River,” “The Days of Wine and Roses,” “It Had Better Be Tonight,” the theme from “Peter Gunn,” “Charade,” “Two for the Road” and more. Hill's Broadway CV includes roles in “The Color Purple,” “Oklahoma” and “Riverdance on Broadway.” Watts recently starred at the New York City Opera in “The Most Happy Fella.” The ASO reprises the show on Saturday; same time, same price.
