Chicago Symphony Orchestra @ The Morton Arboretum: CSO Salutes John Williams
Thursday, June 27, 2013
This event is SOLD OUT.
Join the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and conductor Richard Kaufman on a journey from Jurassic Park to Hogwarts in an evening of music by movie composer extraordinaire John Williams. While relaxing on the Concert Lawn at The Morton Arboretum, you’ll hear excerpts from classic films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark, Superman, Sabrina, E.T., Star Wars, and of course, Jaws. The New York Times calls Williams’ scores “a wonder”, noting “there is no one better than Mr. Williams at drawing out delicious tension before laying down the big, unforgettable theme for the first time as the camera swoops…”
We look forward to seeing you at The Morton Arboretum. Here is some additional information so you can Plan Your Experience.
