The Columbus Symphony Orchestra will present the music of one of film’s most wonderful and whimsical composers in Danny Elfman.

Elfman has worked with many legendary directors, but Tim Burton was the first (the duo collaborated on “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” in 1985).

So it’s appropriate the symphony focuses this performance on the scores Elfman crafted for Burton’s films — “Batman,” “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Big Fish” and many more.
