Stanley Kubrick’s use of music in film and his brother-in-law’s experience of working alongside the famous St Albans director featured in a recent Q&A session.
More than 170 parents and guests attended a talk on Tuesday, March 15 at St Albans School by Jan Harlan, Kubrick’s executive producer for over 30 years.
The Q&A session was preceded by a chat with pupils during the day, with Harlan discussing the challenges and opportunities for today’s young filmmakers.
The evening discussion was followed by a concert of music from Kubrick’s films, all of which were performed by St Albans School’s pupils, including We’ll Meet Again from Dr Strangelove.
Tom Young, head of academic music, said: “Giving pupils the opportunity to learn from some of the masters across the Arts is incredibly important and valuable.
