Texas Performing Arts presents a screening of the1931 film VIDEO: Carrie Underwood Talks Music, FRANKENSTEIN, starring as the Frankenstein Motherhood and Her Idol , featuring a new film score by composer Michael Shapiro performed by The University of Texas Wind Ensemble, Jerry F. Junkin, conductor. The first half of the program features the UT Wind Ensemble performing Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor and Dukas' The Sorcerer's Apprentice, with video projections designed by UT graduate Stephanie Busing.

Unlike The (1935) with its lush score by Franz Waxman, the 1931 FRANKENSTEIN was produced without a movie score. Movie critics have remarked that Frankenstein is badly in need of music, and American composer Michael Shapiro was up to the task with a commission for a new film score from the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Mr. Shapiro's 70-minute score is orchestrated for wind ensemble and will be performed by UT's renowned wind ensemble. For modern day moviegoers, Mr. Shapiro's haunting music adds significantly to the emotional impact of the film.

Michael Shapiro's works, which in the aggregate address nearly every medium, have been performed widely throughout the United States, , and Europe -- with broadcasts of premieres on National Public Radio, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the Israel Broadcasting Authority, Sender Freies Berlin, WQXR, and WCBS-TV. His music has been characterized in a New York Times review as "possessing a rare melodic gift." His oeuvre includes more than one hundred works for solo voice, piano, chamber ensembles, chorus, orchestra, as well as for opera, film, and television, with recordings on Naxos and Paumanok Records.

Conducted by Jerry F. Junkin, The University of Texas Wind Ensemble has firmly established itself as one of America's elite wind bands. Active in the area of commissioning new music since 1988, the group has offered world premiere performances of works by composers such as John Corigliano, Michael Daugherty, Donald Grantham, David Maslanka, and Dan Welcher.

The Wind Ensemble made its international debut at the Fifth Conference of the World Association of Symphonic Bands and Ensembles in Manchester, , in 1991, and its New York debut at Carnegie Hall in February 1998. In the summer of 2008, the ensemble embarked on a seventeen day European Tour, performing in prestigious festivals and venues in England, Luxembourg, , Austria, and .
