North Bethesda, MD - Monday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m., Music Center at Strathmore, North Bethesda, Md. - The best film scores in history pack an emotional power such that the music itself has transcended the moving pictures they were originally created to accompany. Many of these famous themes were composed by a group of distinguished international composers who came to Hollywood to ply their trade in the movies, and the sweeping symphonic scores they provided have since proven equally effective in performance on the concert stage. This special concert highlights music from films that span nearly 75 years, from the Golden Age of Hollywood to the cinema of our time, anchored by some of the greatest film music ever written in John Williams’ score to Star Wars. In addition to featuring some of the series’ iconic themes, this special concert will include brand new music from the recently released episode Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
