Farm to table
Sep 24, 2012 | 2:10 pm
As part of the Sarah & Ernest Butler Pops Series, The Austin Symhony will present Elf in Concert, conducted by Peter Bay.
In the film, Buddy was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father.
The audience can relive this heartwarming holiday classic on a giant screen as every note of John Debney’s score is played live to picture.
