Music From a Galaxy Far Far Away

Last weekend I hit the pinnacle of Star Wars fandom at the Charlotte Symphony, taking in a performance showcasing music from all seven films. Conductor Christopher James Lees took pauses between some of the pieces to give the audience background and insight to some of the pieces featured. 

I personally gained a new appreciation for Rey’s Theme from The Force Awakens after hearing it performed, but the highlight of the night had to have been Darth Vader storming the stage to conduct the booming Imperial March with his light saber. John William’s music is intricate and breathtaking, and the Charlotte Symphony shined while performing it.

If you’re in the Charlotte area, check out upcoming performances:
