Holy string section! The sweeping arrangements of orchestral music has been pleasing crowds everywhere for hundreds of years, in part due to their intricacy and another their ability to capture a wide range of energy and emotions, from epic to peaceful, burdened to hopeful.

And although orchestral music has been a partner to film for a shorter amount time, its partnership is strong, helping pull out emotions into a scene and drive narrative — from the big, booming entrance of a story’s antagonist to the rom com moment in the rain.

We’ve pulled together a smattering artists making some of the most thought-provoking and magical orchestral music out there. Whether you’re looking for powerful, cinematic scores a la Austin-based composer, Keen Collective, or reflective, revelatory journeys like those crafted by Wisconsin-based composer, Matthew Hollingsworth, the options are endless (and beautiful).
