Danny Elfman brings to Aliso Viejo the North American Premiere of a brand new percussion concerto, co-commissioned by Soka Performing Arts Center at Soka University and the London Philharmonic, performed by Colin Currie – as one critic put it, ‘surely the world’s finest and most daring percussionist’. The concerto will be performed with Pacific Symphony, under the baton of Music Director Carl St.Clair.

Danny Elfman is a legend of contemporary film music, a four-time Oscar nominee, whose scores for Alice in Wonderland, Batman and Edward Scissorhands fused pop culture with the Romantic tradition, to dazzling effect. Elfman has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry, collaborating with directors such as Tim Burton, Gus Van Sant, Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson and more, and scoring over 100 films, including: Milk (Oscar nominated), Good Will Hunting (Oscar nominated), Big Fish (Oscar nominated), Men in Black (Oscar nominated), Edward Scissorhands, Batman, To Die For, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Alice in Wonderland, and writing the iconic theme music for the television series The Simpsons and Desperate Housewives.
