The New York University Symphony Orchestra, under conductor Scott Dunn, will present a musical and film tribute honoring the late Leonard Rosenman at 8 p.m. Monday, March 2, at the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, 566 LaGuardia Place (at Washington Square South). The event is free and open to the public.

Rosenman, who died in 2008, is the Academy Award-winning composer of such celebrated scores as East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. The NYU Symphony Orchestra will perform live concert suites from those scores, in addition to classic 20th century works by Rosenman's mentors and influences.

The evening also includes screenings of four films by undergraduate and graduate film students in the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and will feature live synced performances of original scores composed by film scoring majors at NYU's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.

Finally, the evening includes NYU Steinhardt violin faculty virtuoso Gregory Fulkerson in a performance of Rosenman's adaptation of the "Vitali Ciacone," orchestrated by film scoring faculty member Michael Patterson.

Music director Dunn, of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, was a long-time close friend and student of Rosenman's. Ron Sadoff, director of the NYU Steinhardt Film Scoring Program, will speak.

This concert marks the inauguration of The Leonard Rosenman Collection to the Fales Library Special Collection and the Steinhardt Film Scoring Program, donated by Judie Gregg Rosenman and family.

One of America's most gifted and innovative composers, Leonard Rosenman (1924-2008) won Oscars for Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon (1975) and Bound for Glory (1976). He was awarded Emmys for his scores for Sybil (1976) and Friendly Fire (1979), having also composed extensively for television series such as Marcus Welby M.D., The Defenders and Combat!
