Program Notes

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (also known as Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens) is a 2015 American epic space opera film directed, co-produced, and co-written by J. J. Abrams. The seventh installment in the main Star Wars film series, it stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Max von Sydow. The Force Awakens is set 30 years after Return of the Jedi; it follows Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron's search for Luke Skywalker and their fight alongside the Resistance, led by veterans of the Rebel Alliance, against Kylo Ren and the First Order, successor to the Galactic Empire. John Williams, composer for the previous six films, returned to compose its score.

This arrangement of a medley of the themes from The Force Awakens and previous Star Wars movies was written by Paul Lavender. And was premiered on the winter 2016 tour of the United States Army Field Band under the baton of Jim Keane. A previous version, known as Track 21 was prepared in great secrecy for premier at the 2015 Midwest Clinic in Chicago by the Army Field Band.
