Last March, Colorado Symphony conductor Christopher Dragon donned a T-rex costume to lead the ensemble in a performance of John Williams’ beloved ‘Jurassic Park’ theme song. The hilarious musical moment is getting its 15 minutes of fame after a video from the concert was posted to social media.
The video, which was shared by @TheLeanMarie on Wednesday, was recorded by Twitter user @janellebowen, who wrote:
“I recorded this video last year at the Colorado Symphony Orchestra tribute to comic con concert!! I was sitting close to the stage and I was there enjoying every minute of it.”
The concert, titled ‘A Symphonic Tribute to Comic Con: The Tetralogy,’ was wonderfully geektastic and also featured music from the scores to ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas,’ ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,’ ‘Star Wars,’ and ‘Game of Thrones.’ Violinist Sandy Cameron had also joined the symphony for a concerto inspired by the music of ‘Assassin’s Creed.’
Dragon executed multiple costume changes throughout the performance, including one where he emerged as Beetlejuice. But his T-rex for ‘Jurassic Park’ is still making waves online. Check out the videos and Tweets below!
