Movie Review: Music From the Inside Out

Alternate Title: The Sound of Music

Story: Ever wonder who all those people are in the orchestra? What are their lives like? What do they do when they are not performing? Do they lose their individuality as they are absorbed into the group? Are they always dressed up?

Director and producer Daniel Anker delivers a very entertaining documentary about the musicians in the Philadelphia Orchestra. He traveled around the world with them for three years and filmed their stories. We meet an intriguing bunch of people with outside interests, passions and histories.

From part time salsa players, painters, bluegrass fanatics and marathoners their first love is music but it is not their only passion. If you can find this entertaining, light film near you, check it out. I guarantee you will exit smiling. You will also never look at an orchestra quite the same way again.
