The Score


The Score is a weekly celebration of symphonic music in film, and a fascinating guided tour through America's best-loved art form. It includes timely box office tie-ins and enticing weekly themes. Host Edmund Stone is a classically trained Shakespearean actor whose background includes a variety of stage and screen roles.


Thanksgiving Stuffing: Edmund Stone has a musical feast this week on The Score. You'll hear music about the Thanksgiving holiday -- from making the feast with What's Cooking, to football fever with 80 for Brady, and of course family gatherings in Home for the Holidays.



Dragons - Flights of Fancy: This episode of The Score takes on the music and mythos of dragons. From fearsome fire-breathing beasts in Game of Thrones and Reign of Fire to friendly flying protectors in How to Train Your Dragon and Spirited Away.



Variations on the Theme of Santa:  Whether you call him Father Christmas, Santa Claus or Saint Nick, he's the one who brings joy this time of year.  This week on The Score, Edmund Stone has a stocking full of music inspired by this merry elf. Hear excerpts from Rise of the Guardians, A Boy Called Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, The Santa Clause and more.
