Each season, the Elgin Symphony Orchestra has a festival highlighting a particular composer. This season's festival is called Exiles in Hollywood, featuring the concert music of Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Miklos Rozsa and Franz Waxman. In conjuction the ESO, the Gail Borden Public Library will be showing a trio of films scored by these giants of movie music.
