'Star Wars: In Concert'

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Hearing John Williams's "Star Wars" scores can make you feel as if you're right back in that galaxy far, far away. In this concert, a full symphony orchestra and choir accompany clips from the films. From the Oscar-winning score for 1977's "Star Wars" to the mournful themes that accompanied the sixth and final film in 2005, Williams's compositions played an integral role in shaping the stories. The show is narrated by Anthony Daniels, who played C-3PO. An exhibit of props and costumes from the movies also will be displayed.
