Be sure to catch Star Wars ‘A New Hope’ at Roy Thomson Hall for the ultimate pop up symphonic experience this upcoming weekend. New experiences are so important and being able to watch George Lucas’ epic ‘A New Hope’ on a big screen with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra playing the musical score underneath the film is not only nostalgic but it is also heart warming on a chilly winter’s night.
The Toronto Symphony Orchestra gleams “John Williams has become one of America’s most accomplished and successful composers for film and for the concert stage, and he remains one of North America’s most distinguished and contributive musical voices. He has composed the music and served as music director for more than 100 films, including all eight Star Wars films, the first three Harry Potter films, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Jaws, etc.” He’s a giant when it comes to musical scores and well worth the ticket price to listen to his gorgeously composed music as performed by the likes of the Toronto Symphony.
Conductor, Sarah Hicks, is “noted in The New York Times as part of “’a new wave of female conductors in their late 20’s through early 40’s,” Sarah Hicks’s versatile and vibrant musicianship has secured her place in “the next generation of up-and-coming American conductors’ according to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra”. She arrived onto the stage with a green light saber and was ready to demonstrate her conducting eloquence to an audience who was ready to roll out the welcome rug. Hicks took charge of an emotional, energetic and beloved musical score without skipping a beat.
Be sure to catch one or all of the next Star Wars “A New Hope” performances this weekend. Don’t worry about snacks, popcorn and pints – The Toronto Symphony Orchestra will keep you toasty. May the force be with you.
