John Williams

Ian and I, along with our friend Missy, went to a symphony last night at Verizon Wireless Irvine Meadows Amphitheater.  The Pacific Symphony was doing a tribute to John Williams, the guy who did the music in Star Wars.   He also composed music for the Indiana Jones movies, Jaws,  E.T., Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, etc. but mainly STAR WARS.  It was a great show, and everybody sat around drinking their wine out of little plastic wine glasses, (not us, God not us), and the moon slowly rose up over the stage during the performance.  It’s not easy for me to become enthralled by an orchestra, but whenever I’d focus on the conductor’s hands, I’d get lost in the music and how amazing it is that musicians can come together in such perfect harmony as to create  intense emotions with their music.  I can’t even play the ipod without messing something up.

We also saw Stormtroopers, Boba Fett, Yoda, Princess Leia, and several light sabers throughout the evening.  R2D2 came out and said some things too.  I’m not a fan, but yes, I got pretty choked up while listening to live Star Wars music.
