Golden State Pops Orchestra presents Superhero Soundtracks

Some of the best composers in the world like Hans Zimmer, John Williams and James Horner have crafted musical masterpieces for many of the superhero movies we enjoy today. On Saturday April 18th, I was fortunate enough to witness/listen to a phenomenal musical event that involved some of those pieces. The Golden State Pops Orchestra put on a spectacle called Superhero Soundtracks; it’s exactly what you think it is, and it was amazing!
