CLASSICAL | RPO plays "Home Alone"


"Home Alone" — that 1990 holiday season classic that taught kids how all you really need to protect your home are some clever booby traps — really has a charming score that can still stand alone from the movie during the snowy months. The score was composed by John Williams (just a year after his work on "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade") and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Score. The film's touching, recognizable main title, "Somewhere in my Memory," was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song and a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media. The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, with the Rochester Oratorio Society (directed by Eric Townell), will screen the film with live orchestral accompaniment this Saturday. Constantine Kitsopoulos will conduct.

The RPO will present "Home Alone" on Saturday, December 12, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. 7 p.m. $12-$91. 454-2100;
