#393 John Williams: Hooray for Hollywood

Posted by Tara Peterson on Thu, May 26, 2011

johnwilliamsOkay...I'm a HUGE OST fan. And I have John Williams to thank for that. I remember when I saw him for the first time at the POPS and I wanted to have a huge sign that said "I LOVE you John Williams" and wanted to sway my lighter around...but my brother stopped me from doing so.

If you share my love for J.W. and for just movie music in general, because after all, what would the movies be without the music...head to Symphony Hall for Hooray for Hollywood or even purchase your tickets online right now.
The line-up seems AMAZIMG!

Suite from Far and Away

Devil's Dance from The Witches of Eastwick

Night Journeys from Dracula

Imperial March from The Empire Strikes Back
