Quotes & Highlights
- Watch a preview video of Star Wars: In Concert.
- "Star Wars: In Concert is more a multi-media, sensory overload extravaganza, than a mere concert… the crowd was stoked from the get-go. Host Anthony Daniels had the crowd in the palm of his hand.” --Orange County Register
- “The biggest revelation was John Williams’ still stirring, romantically inspired, emotionally satisfying, compelling and exciting score --- one simple story, well told, elevated by the dynamic symphonic music that revolutionized the way films are scored.” --Salt Lake City Deseret News
Star WarsTM: In Concert, the unique multi-media event featuring music from all six of John Williams’ epic Star Wars scores, returns to North America on June 3 & 4 at the Hollywood Bowl.
The production features the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra with a full choir, accompanied by specially edited footage from the films displayed on a three-story-tall, HD LED super-screen.
The live music and film elements are synchronized, creating a full multi-media, one-of-kind Star Wars experience. “We’ve taken the key themes from the music and cut together all the images that fit with each theme, so you can really get a sense of how the music played into the images,” said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “The whole soundtrack is a testament to John Williams’ creativity and his extraordinary ability to enhance the emotional aspects of the films.”
“Creating the music for the Star Wars films has been an exciting and wonderful experience for me, and I therefore have derived particular pleasure in assembling a compendium of themes from all of the films to be presented in Star Wars in Concert,” said Williams. “The editors at Lucasfilm have created original film montages to accompany each of the musical selections, and in the process, I believe that a singular and unique Star Wars experience has been born.”
“This event has been crafted to present Star Wars from many points of view; for the first time, the full dramatic sweep of Williams’ iconic scores can be heard performed live in one evening,” said Another Planet Touring Producer Spencer Churchill. “The show is a new way of experiencing the epic scope of the saga.”
