HSO to present “The Music of John Williams” on Feb. 26 at the VBC
HUNTSVILLE – For nearly 70 years, John Williams has provided the soundtracks for many of the world’s most beloved films; his music for Star Wars is rated by the American Film Institute as the greatest film score of all time. On February 26, the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra will home his contributions to music with The Music of John Williams.
“Music is there for everybody,” says Williams, lauded for his ability to engage audiences through powerful themes.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Mark C Smith Concert Hall at the VBC in Huntsville.
“From Star Wars to Indiana Jones, and much more in between, the evening’s program is going to be pure magic,” the HSO stated in their description of the concert. “Enjoy gripping, evocative symphonic scores from many chapters and facets of Williams’ storied career, performed by the full orchestra in a special salute to America’s movie maestro.”
Long considered the region’s premier performing arts group, the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra has set the standard in North Alabama for artistic quality, community support and service through education for over six decades.
