John Williams – Essay and Flute Concerto

March 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$15 – $88

A dark and mysterious atmosphere fills the Essay for Strings by John Williams, the most famous film composer of our times. You may be more familiar with his music for the movies, but you’ll certainly hear a dramatic hint of his well-known scores in the Essay and his Japanese-influenced Flute Concerto, starring SSO Principal Flute and Stephen Riady Chair, Jin Ta. The blistering energy of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 makes an exciting contrast in the second half.
