From Schirmer Theatrical, experience Ivan Reitman's two-time Oscar and two-time Golden Globe-nominated film, screened live as an orchestra performs Elmer Bernstein's Grammy-nominated score and Ray Parker Jr.'s Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping theme song, "Ghostbusters"!
Bring your proton pack and join the original paranormal investigation and elimination team as they capture their first ghost, Slimer, and encounter their first god of destruction, Gozer the Gozerian! Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis as eccentric parapsychologists who start a ghost-catching business in New York City after their careers in academia go awry. The film's co-stars include Sigourney Weaver as the Ghostbusters' first client turned Gatekeeper, Rick Moranis as an accountant turned Keymaster, and Ernie Hudson as the Ghostbusters' first recruit.
Peter M. Bernstein, son of the Academy Award-winning composer and an orchestrator for the film, joined Schirmer Theatrical's creative team in reconstructing Elmer Bernstein's brilliant score, which has been performed in dozens of cities around the world since the premiere performance in October 2018. As part of each performance, orchestras become honorary recipients of The Venkman Prize! Recognized as "the greatest award ever given in the history of classical music," The Venkman Prize honors Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore for their service to the international community of symphonic musicians.
