This is SO COOL!
Young people from Cleveland, Ohio’s Contemporary Youth Orchestra (CYO) will be performing the music from my latest film, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, LIVE!! This Saturday, March 11th, this group of talented high schoolers will play the soundtrack accompanied by a screening of the film at Cleveland State University!
As you might remember, my friend Mark Mothersbaugh, co-founder of DEVO, composed the album’s awesome score! It’s really great!*
CYO’s music director Liza Grossman says, “It’s fun, it’s light, it’s circus-y and the music is very reflective of what’s happening in the film.” She’s right!
*If you’re a longtime fan of mine, you probably remember that he also created music for my TV show, Pee-wee’s Playhouse!
