2009/10/12 Starwars In Concert
π 2009-10-12 01:01 in Outings
I had no idea that this was going on, not that I am a huge starwars fan (I like the movies a lot, but I'm just not a die hard fan), however I've always much appreciated John William's excellent music in Star Wars. It's a shame that most people don't even know who he is when he's done excellent music scores for so many movies, many by Lucas and Spielberg, as well as others (Indiana Jones, Star Wars, ET, Supermans, Schindler's List). Just check out his imdb list. Anyway, one of my coworkers was selling her tickets to the event sunday afternoon and that's how I found out about it and got her tickets (thanks)
But back to Star Wars, I think that was some of John William's best work, and while I am not the kind of person to go see musical concerts (I enjoy the music, but not sitting in a dark room just listening to it when I can do it at home), and neither is Jennifer, Star Wars in Concert promised to make it more entertaining by telling the saga story with a narrator and giant screens while the music was being played live.

This was a great idea and it sure did not disappoint. The music was as good as I remembered it and the story, screens and visuals were great (in addition to the projection screen, they had some interesting LED based screens strung on the sides).
