The Music of John Williams

Steered by conductor Lawrence Loh, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra serves up an emotional and action-packed program of cinematic themes composed by John Williams. Nominated for an astonishing 47 Academy Awards (with five wins), Williams's melodies are inseparable from the blockbusters he's scored, and are certain to stir up celluloid memories in the hands of the PSO. Opening with his Grammy-winning Olympic Fanfare and Theme, written in 1985, the orchestra swoops through Williams's career, bringing to life excerpts from Jurassic Park, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and the iconically ominous suite from Jaws. They then launch into selections from two more Spielberg classics—"A Prayer for Peace" (Avner's Theme) from Munich and "Dartmoor, 1912" from War Horse—before visiting other worlds with E. T. (The Extra-Terrestrial). Anchoring the evening is a little bit of magic—and a little bit of space magic: Williams's suites from the Harry Potter series and the Star Wars saga, including "The Imperial March."

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1896, and its reputation was as big as its sound right from the start. Andrew Carnegie was an early backer, and reportedly claimed that it was the best orchestra in the country. More than a century later, the organization still enjoys its status as a nationally renowned organization. And the PSO continues to take pride in its acclaim—perhaps expanding on Carnegie's earlier view, current Music Director Manfred Honeck called the company "one of the world's finest orchestras."

The long-lived PSO makes its home in an equally historic venue. Converted from an opulent movie palace in 1971, when Americans swore off movies in favor of high culture, Heinz Hall proves itself an exceptional music venue. Fine acoustics please ears, while eyes take in glittering chandeliers and glints of gold leaf.
