The music of Star Wars is as iconic as the movies themselves. Well, maybe not “Jedi Rocks” from the 1997 re-released version of Return of the Jedi, but the Classic John Williams stuff. The good folks at Carnegie Hall seem to agree. The New York Pops will be honoring the famed conductor/composer in an all new concert, The Music of John Williams: From Spielberg to Star Wars. Under the direction of conductor Steven Reineke, the NY Pops will be performing some of Williams classic’s from Jurassic Park, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and everything Star Wars from A New Hope to Force Awakens.

Music Director Steven Reineke spoke about the program in a press release, saying:

“It’s always a special moment when the orchestra itself takes the spotlight. I am so proud of the work that our New York Pops musicians do every day, and I am so glad that this concert will feature them. I can’t imagine a richer, more exciting concert program than the one we’ve put together to celebrate John Williams. Every time I conduct these movie scores, I’m transported back to the movie theater where I heard them for the first time. You can count on Carnegie Hall being filled with thoughts of Jedi knights, aliens phoning home, and T-rexes before the night is done!”
