Houston Symphony presents "Star Wars and More"
Houston Symphony associate conductor Robert Franz leads the Houston Symphony in "Star Wars and More," a family concert that will take audiences through the intergalactic music of the Star Wars film series, composed by five-time Academy-Award winner John Williams. Williams' striking orchestral compositions for this film are among the most recognizable in the film music history, from the recurring musical theme Imperial March that first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back film to Battle of the Heroes from Revenge of the Sith.
The family concert also features Tchaikovsky's epic 1812 Overture and Appian Way from Respighi's Pines of Rome. Franz and the Houston Symphony will share the stage with members of the Dobie High School Marching Band in their Houston Symphony debut.
