An evening of celebrating Star Wars with the music of John Williams? Who can pass that up? If you answered no to that question then I have some great news for you.
The Philly POPS will take over the Kimmel Center to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars with the music of John Williams. John Williams has won five Academy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, seven British Academy Film Awards, and 22 Grammy Awards. With 50 Academy Award nominations, Williams is the second most-nominated individual, after Walt Disney.
The Philly POPS Festival Chorus will perform along with the fabulous Garrison Carida of the 501st Legion recreating the characters that make up the Star Wars galaxy!
You’ll have three chances to see this show; October 20, 21, and 22. And be sure to dress in your Star Wars best!
