The iconic 1946 film Its A Wonderful Life was shown with the San Francisco Symphony playing the score live

San Francisco Symphony Orchestra

Tomorrow and Saturday the San Francisco Symphony will perform the score from “It’s A Wonderful Life” by Dimitri Tiomkin live in sync with the film. In 1946 the grand finale of the score was cut from the film at the last minute, and the score was eventually lost. For this performance I recreated the full score from the 1946 handwritten instrumental parts. It was an honor, and I wish I could make the show. I worked with Justin Freer from CineConcerts.
