Auberjonois To Rally The Troops At LA ConcertBy Caillan
May 28, 2003 - 6:28 AM
Deep Space Nine's Rene Auberjonois (Odo) will perform one of the best known Shakespearean speeches at the Los Angeles Master Chorale's salute to film composers next month.
The actor will be featured during the last event on the programme: a rendition of Non Nobis Domine, according to a press release. Auberjonois will perform the St. Crispin's Day speech from Henry V, Act 4, Scene 3, in which the English king rallies his troops before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415.
Non Nobis Domine was originally written in the 16th century. The Los Angeles Master Chorale will sing the same version composed by Patrick Doyle for the 1989 film version of Henry V, written and directed by, and starring, Kenneth Branagh.
The chorale will also be performing several pieces composed by Star Trek alumni. These include the Suite from Triumph of the Spirit, by Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country composer Cliff Eidelman; Trek music maestro Jerry Goldsmith's The Mission from The Sum of All Fears; and the Suite from Titanic, composed by James Horner (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; Star Trek III: The Search For Spock).
"It's A Wrap", as the concert is being called, will be the farewell performance by the Los Angeles Master Chorale at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion before moving to the Walt Disney Concert Hall. In addition to the above pieces, the chorale will also perform work by John Williams (Amistad), Danny Elfman (Edward Scissorhands) and Maurice Jarre (Sunshine).
The event will be held at the Pavilion at 7:00 p.m. on June 7. Ticket information is available by calling (213) 972-7282 or visiting the official web site of the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
