The force is strong with this one!

The Philly POPS sets course for a galaxy far, far away with the music that changed cinema forever! 

From the goosebumps of the “Main Theme” of the very first blockbuster film, to the suspense of the “Duel of the Fates,” John Williams’ soaring scores are rich with unforgettable themes. Williams composed the scores for all nine Star Wars films, starting with A New Hope in 1977, and has won seven GRAMMY awards and 10 nominations for the saga.  

Join the Rebellion and come in costume as your favorite character to hear the 65-piece Philly POPS orchestra performing the iconic soundtracks as they were recorded.
