John Paul’s Film Score Featured in Festival

Dr. John Paul, music department chair, will conduct a live performance of his musical score for the film City Girl at The Liberty Theater as part of the Astoria Music Festival on June 20, 2013.

F.W. Murnau's 1930 classic silent film City Girl is a tale of love between the beautiful Chicago girl Kate and simple farm boy Lem. Set in the wheat fields of Minnesota, the film was actually shot in eastern Oregon. Dr. Paul composed a score to accompany the film for the Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival in 2009.

John F. Paul is active writing music for the concert hall as well as film and videogames. His interests lie in the intersection of the dramatic and architectural aspects of music. He currently chairs the Department of Music at Marylhurst University, where he teaches composition and holds the Joseph Naumes Endowed Chair in Music. His music has been heard at concerts by Free Marz String Trio, Portland Vocal Consort, Northwest New Music Ensemble, and at the Ernest Bloch Composers Symposium, June-in-Buffalo and the International Festival of Experimental Music in Bourges, France.
