Galloway, N.J. – Composer and conductor Ennio Morricone, who has composed more than 500 scores for cinema and television, is the subject of a tribute lecture at Stockton University on Thursday, April 6, 2017.

“Listening to the Movies: A Tribute to Ennio Morricone” will be presented by Franco Sciannameo, senior associate dean and teaching professor of music in the College of Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon University and visiting professor of Musicology in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures at the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom. The lecture, free and open to the public, will be held in L-Wing, room L-112, on Stockton’s Galloway campus at 4:30 p.m.

Born in Italy, violinist, musicologist and cultural historian Sciannameo writes and lectures extensively on contemporary music and its relation to politics, cinema and the arts. He has been part of Morricone's world for decades and will tell his story, while guiding the audience through the listening pleasures of the composer's cinematic magical sound.

The lecture is sponsored by the School of Arts and Humanities and the Office of the Provost. For more information, visit
