John Williams: Maestro of the Movies (with Oregon Symphony)
Star Wars, Superman, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Jaws, ET, Harry Potter, Jaws, Jurassic Park—what do they all have in common other than the fact you can hum them on demand? They, like a good chunk of the most iconic musical moments of the last 40 years, were all composed by the same person: legendary musical composer John Williams.
And now Williams will visit the Oregon Symphony to conduct a special one-night event of his music. To make it more enticing, the evening’s proceeds go to fund the symphony’s education and community outreach programs.
