A Galaxy Far, Far Away Coming to the Longview Symphony’s “Star Wars” Concert
No matter if you’re a dedicated fan of the “Star Wars” franchise or just a casual movie buff, you can probably identify John Williams’ iconic theme music from just a few notes. This May, the Longview Symphony’s “Star Wars” concert takes the stage on May 4 to blow you away with his stunning score from the whole series of films.
In case you didn’t know, May 4 is the perfect date for this concert because it’s “Star Wars” Day. The official title of the concert explains why: May the Fourth Be With You.
Besides the music of “Star Wars,” the May concert will highlight themes from other iconic John Williams movie scores such as “Harry Potter” and “E.T.” A special selection of songs will feature renowned trumpeter Paul Terrell, and a piece by compose Howard Hanson is also scheduled for the performance. Hanson’s second symphony might sound familiar to you because sections of it were used in the movie “Aliens.”
Guest conductor Fred J. Allen will lead the Longview Symphony in its “Star Wars” concert at the LeTourneau University Belcher Center. Opening notes will start at 6:30 p.m. with pre-concert music following at 7:00 p.m. The full concert will then kick off promptly at 7:30 p.m.
Here at Crown Kia of Longview, we can tell that the Force is strong with this event, so be sure to bring your entire crew to this intergalactic event.
