A very different crowd will be filing into the Adrienne Arsht Center’s Knight Concert Hall this weekend.  Instead of the usual group, predominately made up of women between 55 and 65 years old, swarms of 18- to 25-year-old boys will be packing the seats.

But they aren’t coming for Mozart or Beethoven. They’re coming to hear the music of a popular, 25-year-old video-game series, called Final Fantasy, performed by an orchestra.

Caroline Breder-Watts and Scott Eyman discuss the work of Jerry Goldsmith, one of the most prolific and influential film composers of the 20th Century.  To hear the complete conversation, visit
