Louisville Orchestra to perform score for live screening of Hitchcock's "Psycho" [Music]


When Alfred Hitchcock chose Bernard Herrmann to compose the music for his take on a low-budget thriller, the effect was impeccable. It's hard to forget the screeching violin that accompanied the inconic "Shower Scene," or the hard knocking persistence of the film's opening theme. This Saturday evening, you can watch the drama unfold as the Louisville Orchestra performs the score along to a live screening of this legendary film. Hitchcock even said himself that "33% of the effect of Psycho was due to the music." Now you can experience Psycho in a way that movie goers in the 60’s couldn't before: completely brought alive.

Ticket prices vary from $20-$30 and can be purchased through Live Nation or at the Louisville Palace box office.
