Symphony Announces ‘Star Wars’ Concert
The force will be strong in the Robinson Center this fall.
The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra is bringing the music of "Star Wars" to life with pieces selected from the entire series of 10 feature films, an animated film, three TV films and six animated series.
Concerts will take place Saturday, Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 21 at 3 p.m. and the program will feature costumes, trivia and decoration of the Robinson Center to create a fully immersive experience.
Attendees — young and old alike — are invited to dress up as their favorite "Star Wars" characters for the show.
The celebrated film composer John Williams composed all music from the eight saga films (Williams is also slated to score the ninth and final film), with award-winners Michael Giacchino and John Powell composing the music for the spin-off films.
