"I'm very honored to be performing at The Getty Center with a 15 piece choir singing music from some of my favorite classic movies,” Haden says. “Come with me as we break through the bars of your earthly confinement traveling through time, space, and a symphony of voices."

On Petra Goes To The Movies, epic and evocative scores have been ingeniously recreated utilizing layers of remarkably inventive vocals. Far from a mere novelty, these interpretations retain every bit of emotional resonance and inspirational might as the originals. Haden is a highly regarded musician and former member of That Dog who has contributed to records by Beck, The Twilight Singers, The Decemberists, Foo Fighters, Mike Watt and others. In 2005 released an a-cappella rendition of the Who’s pop art masterwork “The Who Sell Out” to widespread acclaim. Pete Townshend proclaimed the record “beautiful.”
