Program Notes

The world welcomes the George Lucas revitalization of the Star Wars motion pictures. These magnificent films transport us to an unknown galaxy thousands of light-years from Earth. The soundtracks by John Williams have become legendary. This medley chooses representative portions of both the main and end titles of Star Wars, using their major themes to capture the action, the fire and excitement, and the tension and exuberance of the original score.
