Grab your proton pack and join the South Bend Symphony Orchestra as they open the Indiana Trust Pops Series with the 1980s fan-favorite film Ghostbusters! Experience the fun of a live orchestra playing along to the full movie on Saturday, October 29, at the Morris Performing Arts Center. Led by the leading film-orchestra conductor, guest conductor Erik Ochsner, this will be a performance you won’t want to miss!

Follow along with the film as the Ghostbusting crew—Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddemore—and the South Bend Symphony Orchestra amplify the humor, fear, and fun of each scene. As Erik Ochsner’s energy, attention to detail, and precise synchronization will lead both orchestra and audience through the film as you’ve never experienced it before!

To expand on the fun, The Kalamazoo Ghostbusters will be present outside of the Morris, complete with movie-accurate props for a family fun event. Guests are encouraged to come in Halloween costumes to keep the spirit of the season (but please, no weapons)!

The Symphony thanks Indiana Trust Wealth Management for their support of the Pops Series. Jordan Lexus of Mishawaka proudly supports the 90th Season Guest Artists.

About Erik Ochsner

Erik Ochsner is considered by audiences and critics alike to be one of the leading film-with-live-orchestra conductors due to his energy, attention to detail and precise synchronization. Ochsner was invited to conduct the world premiere of Mary Poppins in Concert (1964) at the Sydney Opera House; was Principal Touring Conductor of La La Land Live in Concert, for which he conducted 50 performances of Justin Hurwitz’s Academy Award and Grammy Award winning score across the globe, and on 40 hour’s notice, he flew to Taiwan to conduct Beauty and the Beast in Concert to fill in for an ailing colleague!  His versatility as a conductor has stretched across a broad range of repertoire: from conducting as few as five performers in contemporary and modern works, to leading 300 performers in Live to Projection film concerts.

In June/July 2022, Ochsner conducted the Vancouver Symphony in Star Wars in Concert: Episode 6: Return of the Jedi.  With Montreal’s FILMharmonique, he has conducted Star Wars in Concert: Episode 4: A New Hope and Star Wars in Concert: Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back and will return for Star Wars in Concert: Episode 6: Return of the Jedi in May 2023.

Ochsner’s long relationship with the Krakow International Film Music Festival have been hugely successful leading sold-out performances in a 16,000-seat arena of Pixar in Concert, Frozen and Beauty and the Beast (both performed in Polish), plus Disney in Concert: The Magic of Music with the Krakow Film Festival Youth Orchestra.

Other films he has conducted: Back to the Future, Batman, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Ghostbusters, Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Trek (2009), and Star Trek Into Darkness.

Equally comfortable on the concert stage or leading opera, oratorio and multi-media performances, he has performed in Adelaide, Athens, Beijing, Calgary, Dallas, Detroit, Indianapolis, Jakarta, Kitchener-Waterloo, Krakow, Leipzig, Louisiana, Melbourne, México City, Montreal, Moscow, Nashville, New York, Ottawa, Portland, Reykjavik, Richmond, Rochester, Round Top, San Francisco, Seattle, Shanghai, Sofia, St. Louis, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Sydney, Taipei, Tampere, Tokyo, Vancouver, Wellington, NZ.

Ochsner is Founder and Music Director of SONOS Chamber Orchestra. Recordings include Brian Wilbur Grundstrom: An Orchestral Journey (CD), and Tan Dun’s Tea: A Mirror of Soul (DVD). Ochsner premiered The Music of Star Warswith the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, a full-length evening production featuring the music of John Williams and video game composer Gordy Haab plus the Canadian performers Charlie Ross and Émilie Fournier; was Music Director and conductor of the 2017 Opera America New Works Showcase and was a Guest Conductor at the Nanjing (China) Forest Music Festival. In 2021-2022, he has served as Artistic Advisor to Schirmer Theatrical.
