Grace Kelly performing the Regent Theatre's 'At the Movies: Grace Kelly with Strings'

'At the Movies: Grace Kelly with Strings' dazzled the stage of The Regent Theatre. It was an amazing time! The evening unfolded with an orchestra of 15 talented musicians joining Kelly as she took the audience on a cinematic journey with a collection of what is to be the first of several beloved tunes from iconic films

Grace Kelly is an accomplished saxophonist, singer, and composer with 14 acclaimed albums. Kelly has a vivacious history with music since she started playing when she was 12 years old. Her passion for music and film sparkles in every measure of her performance.

Grace’s saxophone mastery was impressive, embodying ingenious techniques to create marvelous sounds. She danced about the stage, even doing hair flips while playing the saxophone. Her singing voice is equally impressive, accommodating styles of melodies.

Kelly’s concert was set around my favorite subject; movies! The evening’s repertoire consisted of familiar tunes from films. Songs include the soaring theme of ‘The Power of the Love’ from Back to the Future, to the pirate harmony of Pirates of the Caribbean, and then transports audiences to the otherworldly universes of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.

The orchestra of 15 members were all talented, accompanying Grace at the piano, guitar, and violin. They all had a good time. Each had a chance to showcase their expertise. One band member showed off their Guinness World Record with a thousand hand-claps per minute.

Throughout the evening, Kelly delighted audiences with stories from her youth, like going on trips to Blockbusters, and behind-the-scenes trivia in movies. She gave new life to some silver screen classics, like Breakfast at Tiffany’s. As Kelly described, movie soundtracks have changed history.

In my journey as a movie reviewer, I have learned to appreciate music more. It’s an aspect that I never appreciated until recently. I have listened to movie soundtracks more since I began my movie review journey. A movie soundtrack is one of the most important elements in a movie, defining the mood and also playing as a character, contributing to the story.

The audience all had one thing in common and that was movies. During intermission, I listened to several people talk about movie adventures. The shared experience of reliving cinematic moments brought the audience closer together. They tell stories in several different creative formats and the lessons are beneficial.

As the evening came to a close, Kelly treated the audience to a fantastic Disney medley. I love Disney! I immediately sat forward in my seat, dancing, and even feeling tears after ‘Circle of Life’ from The Lion King. I could not stop smiling.

It wasn’t just the music that captivated the audience; it was Kelly herself. For Kelly, this evening was a culmination of a lifelong love for music and film. Her energetic passion and unwavering talent evoked excitement throughout the theater. This was a celebration of the power of music and defining a generation of movies.

Whether it was revisiting cherished childhood memories or discovering new favorites, Kelly's performance struck a chord with everyone in attendance. As we clapped along to the rhythm and sang along to familiar tunes, we were reminded of the timeless appeal of movie music and its ability to transport us to another world.

I had the most amazing time at The Regent Theatre’s showcase of 'At the Movies: Grace Kelly with Strings.' It is a show that I will never forget. Kelly shared a memorable gift making it a night to remember. You must research Grace Kelly and think about seeing one of her concerts.
