Thread: John Williams

    John Williams

    John Williams was recently in Chicago to direct the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He put on two different shows. One, all movie themes, awesome, sold out in about a second. The other, American Journey. This was mostly classical music he directed for a millennium celebration, with a couple of movie themes thrown in at the end, ET, and Witches of Eastwick.
    But, his encore was the Star Wars theme and Darth Vader's march.
    Incredible experience to watch him in action, and hear that music live.
    Thank you Mr. Williams for all you have done, and for recognizing the Star Wars fans in the audience, and for not taking the high-brow path.
    Your music has introduced many of us to classical music, and we thank you.
    Keep it up.

    I heard good reviews of this show from friends who went as well.

    I've seen him twice at the Hollywood Bowl here in CA. Wonderful both times, even when it was non-SW or non-IJ music. His stuff from Saving Private Ryan or Schindler's List are hauntingly beautiful. And the Bowl experience and locale are great, too.
    CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(

    I'd jump at the chance to see him. Dont think hes coming through Denver anytime soon.

    I saw him conduct a few years ago (the night Princess Di was killed actually) at the Hollywood Bowl. Very entertaining.
