This biography of Ludwig von Beethoven centers on a letter found after his death, addressed only to the composer’s “immortal beloved.” No exploration into the life of Beethoven would be complete without examining his piano sonatas and late string quartets, played live in the Little Café by Empire Film and Media Ensemble.
Empire Film and Media Ensemble presents another showcase of student work this time featuring the students at The Beal Institute for Film Music and Contemporary Media. This concert features short films scored by Beal Institute students played live to picture by our orchestra.
The collaboration between RIT filmmakers and Eastman Composers has been one of generations. Join Empire Film and Media Ensemble as we showcase this underexposed partnership through short films played live to picture with our orchestra.

New York, New York it’s a wonderful town - especially when sailors Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Jules Munshin have a 24 hour shore leave to see the sights - and when those sights include Ann Miller, Betty Garrett, and Vera-Ellen. Leonard Bernstein provides the music and Empire Film and Media Ensemble provides the pre-film concert examining his scores of On the Town, Candide, West Side Story, and more.
Screening will occur at the Little Theatre at 3 p.m.
