The Philly POPS Festival Chorus

501st Legion

John Williams has won five Academy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, seven British Academy Film Awards, and 22 Grammy Awards. With 50 Academy Award nominations, Williams is the second most-nominated individual, after Walt Disney. What would E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws, or Harry Potter be without his signature music? You’ll hear it all with the second half of this thrilling tribute devoted to Star Wars in this 40th anniversary year of the space fantasy. The program features the Philly POPS Festival Chorus and, as an added bonus, expect a visit from the fabulous 501st Legion, Garrison Carida re-creating the Star Wars galaxy of characters!
