Winner of an astonishing five Oscars and 22 Grammy awards, John Williams may well be the greatest film composer of all time. His scores for Star Wars, Schindler’s List, Harry Potter, E.T. (The Extraterrestrial), Jurassic Park and the Indiana Jones films have made him a household name. Under the baton of Keith Lockhart, the Boston Pops celebrates a nearly forty-year association with John and his incredible music, in an evening featuring excerpts from the composer’s best-loved scores, as well as some lesser-known gems. No one plays the music of America’s favorite composer like America’s favorite orchestra!
