Overture to Miracle on 34th Street

Bruce Broughton, arr. Johnnie Vinson

 

Overture to Miracle on 34th Street was composed for the 1994 remake of the classic motion picture from 1947. In the original movie a nice old man who claims to be Santa Claus is institutionalized as insane. A young lawyer decides to defend him by arguing in court that he is the real thing.

Bruce Broughton (b. 1945) is a leading composer of music for concerts and soundtracks for film, video game, and television. He has been nominated for twenty Emmy awards and has won ten. He is a member of the Board of Directors of ASCAP, and is a current or past official in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Society of Composers and Lyricists. He has taught film composition at USC and lectured at UCLA.
