Virginia Symphony Orchestra Music Of Star Wars

Virginia Symphony Orchestra Music of Star Wars with dinner before the concert. Join us for just dinner, just the concert or both. Reservations are required so that I know how many people to expect. Depending on how many people are interested we may be able to get a group rate. The earlier you purchase tickets the better selection of seats will be available. I will confirm all reservations and you reservation is not complete until you receive a response from me. Make reservations by phone, by email, or RSVP through the website.

Back by popular demand, the Virginia Symphony Orchestra will perform music from the iconic film franchise Star Wars. Experience the entire saga through the films’ scores written by the legendary John Williams, including music from Rogue One and the recently released Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

John Williams is a fifty-time Oscar nominee for his music, and is well-known for his vast musical film credits spanning from Jaws to E.T. and Harry Potter. His score to George Lucas’s two Star Wars trilogies are widely celebrated.  Williams’s Star Wars score stands out especially among the strong showing of science-fiction cinema in 1977, the year Star Wars premiere. NPR notes that “[Williams’s] mastery of melody and deftness of tone make the Star Wars scores a signal achievement in the history of cinema.”
