MSO - A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES Friday, May 11, 2018 8:00PM   ·   More Info »

No other composer in the history of cinema has had such a profound impact on an audience, and added so much texture to a film, as John Williams. Star Wars… Jaws… Superman… Harry Potter. These are just a handful of the scores we’ll feature during our final POPS concert, which honors the enormous legacy of this movie giant. Guest conductor Stuart Chafetz, who’s worked with musical legends, including Chris Botti, Michael Bolton and Marvin Hamlisch, adds a dynamic podium demeanor and refined sense of audience engagement that will help lift this program into a galaxy far, far, away.
