John Williams Celebration
John Williams may have done more to keep orchestras in the public consciousness than any composer alive. To watch Star Wars is to thrill to that opening trumpet blast. He captured the mystery of the Harry Potter films with a celeste and whispering strings. Fluttering winds launch a magical flight to Peter Pan’s Neverland. The list goes on.
Be there when the FWSO plays a tribute to Williams that includes music from Hook, Superman, Schindler’s List, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and more.
