In the lead-up to the July 20 release of The Dark Knight Rises, the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, the Tumbler Tour has been crisscrossing North America putting the series’ Tumbler (Batmobile) and Bat-pod (motorcycle) on display. The tour rolled through Columbus last Wednesday, and being a Bat-fan and a native of Pittsburgh (part of TDKR was filmed there), Ken from our instrumental department had to check it out and share some photos – it also didn’t hurt that it coincided with his day off! Enjoy!
If you would like to program or perform any music from the Dark Knight’s various adventures, there are plenty of options available:
From the Christopher Nolan series are arrangements of Batmobile Chase for marching band and Corynorhinus (Surveying the Ruins) for piano from Batman Begins. Selections from Hans Zimmer’s fantastic score to The Dark Knight are available for concert band, full orchestra, and in a complete piano folio.
Also available for concert band are arrangements from the animated television series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and NEW for 2012, Selections from Batman: Arkham City, the video game that is taking the gaming world by storm!
