John Williams


Now in his 90th year, John Williams is an inimitable musical icon. He has taken us to galaxies far, far away. He has conjured up wizards, helped the Man of Steel fly above Metropolis and, with two notes, made beachgoers terrified of entering the water. Williams leads the CSO in an evening of highlights from his landmark film scores.
