Music to My Ears Series

Once Upon a Time in the West

We are thrilled to partner with Sidewalk Citizen and the University of Calgary's Institute for the Humanities for two special evenings dedicated to the sublime cinematic music of Ennio Morricone. The legendary Italian composer created some of the most memorable music in recent history. He worked on film genres ranging from Spaghetti Westerns and horrors, to comedies and dramas, and teamed up with some of cinema's greatest auteurs, including Sergio Leone, Tornatore, De Palma, Pasolini, and Tarantino.

This event has passed.
