Symphony Orchestra Augusta fulfills its mission to present grand euphonic performances to the public with “John Williams Spectacular,” a riveting concert that enraptures fans of blockbuster movies with a canon full of memorable themes. Beloved by millions for his unyielding knack for hummable anthems, John Williams has won countless Oscars and Grammys for his invaluable contributions to the film world. For this special evening, renowned music director Shizuo Z Kuwahara conducts the orchestra with his trusty light-saber, whirling through a cadre of greatest hits. Flee for the lobby beach as the daunting theme from Jaws moves its familiar fin through the theater, or fantasize about stealing Harrison Ford’s earring to bombastic melodies from the Indiana Jones series. Eyeglasses fog in high altitudes and hair parts itself to music from Superman, and Darth Vader and a gaggle of Stormtroopers make rare guest appearances during the orchestra’s take on the music from Star Wars. A highlight of the Westobou Festival, Augusta’s 10-day celebration of fine arts, “John Williams Spectacular” paints movies in the ears of fans, giving them all of thrills of watching blockbusters without having to suffer through annoying contrivances such as dialogue and Jar Jar Binks.
