Program Notes

The Dark Knight is a 2008 superhero film directed, produced, and co-written by Christopher Nolan. Featuring the DC Comics character Batman, the film is the second part of Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy and a sequel to 2005's Batman Begins, starring an ensemble cast including Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Morgan Freeman. In the film, Bruce Wayne/Batman (Bale), James Gordon (Oldman) and Harvey Dent (Eckhart) form an alliance to dismantle organised crime in Gotham City, but are menaced by a criminal mastermind known as the Joker who seeks to undermine Batman's influence and create chaos.

- Program Note from Wikipedia


The epic suite from The Dark Knight has been masterfully arranged by Victor López at the concert band level. Retaining the dramatic scoring by the award-winning film scoring team of Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, the suite contains Harvey Two-Face, Introduce a Little Anarchy and Like a Dog Chasing Cars. The musical imagery infused in this medley, scored for contemporary concert band, will capture the imagination for your whole audience.
