On this special Back to the Future social media day, I was talking with Assistant Principal Second Violin Eva Kozma about Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony, which comes up on the concert calendar November 13-15. Kozma is from Romania–one of three Romanians in the orchestra–so I thought it would be interesting to hear her take on Back to the Future.
“It came out when we were still living under Communism,” she told me. Any films they saw from the West were “really old.” She’s managed to see parts of the movie over the years, “So I’m looking forward to seeing the whole thing. As a matter of fact, my husband wants to bring both of our boys to a performance.”
Back to the Future will be on the big screen at Powell Hall October 30-November 1, with the St. Louis Symphony performing the score live.
