The Music of Star Wars

Benjamin Rous, conductor
Virginia Symphony Orchestra Chorus
Robert Shoup, chorusmaster

Regularly performed by orchestras nationwide, John Williams’s music is a fixture of VSO performances, and this year is no exception as the VSO dedicates a concert to his Academy Award and Grammy-winning scores to Star Wars. John Williams is a fifty-time Oscar nominee for his music, and is well-known for his vast musical film credits spanning from Jaws to E.T. and Harry Potter. His score to George Lucas’s two Star Wars trilogies are widely celebrated.

Williams’s Star Wars score stands out especially among the strong showing of science-fiction cinema in 1977, the year of Star Wars’s premiere. NPR notes that “[Williams’s] mastery of melody and deftness of tone make the Star Wars scores a signal achievement in the history of cinema.”
