    Went to the link,came across this:
    No pieces by this composer will be performed this season.
    Is this what I think it means?

    That may pertain to the actual program, but it can hardly apply to the encores, which obviously would not be included in prior program knowledge. There have been years when SW music was only played as encore pieces. This may well be one of those years.

    We'll have to wait and see. I highly doubt there'd be a Williams concert without any Williams stuff.

    Whew! wasn't that a relief? I was more than satifsfied with last nights show. Thank the maker that G-Force brought extra lightsabers last night. I was planning on using my car to drop off my parents and left mine in the back of my car. I really enjoyed the MGM part way more than I tohught I would. Now I want to get all those movies on DVD. I was a huge Gene Kelly fan as a child. He and Ray Bolger were my favorites.

    I thought the stuff about Stanley Donnelly (sp?) was very interesting. He certainly did a lot of innovating!

    TESB - Imperial March
    Raiders of the Lost Ark - Raiders March
    Indiana Jones and the Martians From Mars....oops, I mean Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - Irina's Theme, Marion's Theme, Mutts fight with Irina (Forgot what that particular cue is called)
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Suite
    Jaws - Suite
    E.T. - Flying Theme
    Superman - Main Titles
    Hook - Overture/Flight to Neverland
    Sabrina - Suite
    Olympic Theme from 1984 Games
    Other Olympic Themes which I can't recall

    Dude, where were you? Not even a John Williams concert can drag you back to LA where you belong?

    I got a reply from VK and she's going to give me the skinny on what's going to happen for John Williams this year. As soon as I find out more, you all will find out more.
