Dayton Philharmonic: Best of John Williams II

Overview

DPO SuperPops - Best of John Williams II

The SuperPops concert for March 2019 allows conductor Neal Gittleman and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra to further explore the vast repertoire of composer John Williams. The previous concert, Best of John Williams, was a Dayton audience favorite, and Best of John Williams II will certainly prove to be no less out of this world! 

Often called “America’s composer,” John Williams has been creating movie music since 1959. Over the years, Williams has won 24 Grammy Awards and has been nominated 51 times for an Academy Award, winning the coveted statue five times over the years. His staggering number of Academy nods makes him the second-most nominated individual for the Oscar, next to none other than Mr. Walt Disney himself. The soundtrack for Star Wars (Episode IV) is the best-selling score-only soundtrack of all time, and, in fact, Williams has composed the soundtrack for eight of the twenty highest grossing films at the U.S. Box Office. To say John Williams has had a great influence on the very fabric of American culture over the last 60 years is an understatement! And when he is not composing music for the films that fill our minds and our hearts with unforgettable memories, Williams still serves as the Conductor Laureate for the impeccable Boston Pops.
