The Soundtracks of John Williams

The Soundtracks of John Williams opens the Hershey Symphony’s 47th season with lightning bolts of music, as we celebrate America’s premier composer of film music.  From the poignancy of Schindler’s List to the brandishing of light sabers in Star Wars, so many of us have grown up with our visual experiences guided by the music of John Williams as he represented courage, honor, magic and more in ways only music could.   Try imagining, even for a moment, how much less the impact of a film would be if his soundtracks were missing (what shark?)   This is concert for the entire family and will sell out quickly – get your tickets now!
