Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Presents ‘The Music of Star Wars: Episodes I-VI’ on December 17

On December 17, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra presents music from “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” with “The Music of Star Wars: Episodes I-VI.” Tickets for this concert will go on sale Wednesday, October 28.

Conducted by Daniel Meyer, this concert will feature the iconic music of John Williams from the first six Star Wars films, and will be the perfect warm-up to the movie premiere of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens on December 18. The program includes fan favorites The Imperial March, Across the Stars, The Main Title and many more! The concert will be presented without intermission, ending in plenty of time for a midnight showing of the new movie at a local movie theater!

Arrive when doors open at 5:30 p.m. to hear Star Wars music played live by a 14-piece trombone choir, and socialize with other fans in Heinz Hall’s Grand Lobby. The trombone choir is led by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s Jim Nova. (Hear more of his trombone arrangements at https://soundcloud.com/jimnova.)

Please note that film clips are not included as part of this concert, but attendees are encouraged to come in costume.

Tickets, ranging in price from $20 to $50, go on sale Wednesday, October 28 at 9 a.m. Tickets are available online at pittsburghsymphony.org/starwars, by phone at 412-392-4900 or at the Heinz Hall box office at 600 Penn Ave., downtown.

  • Why would you schedule this on the night The Force Awakens premieres? Every single person who would want to go to this will already be sitting in a movie theater.

  • I agree with Bill. I would have attended this if it was a different night. I’ll be seeing the movie at 7pm this night.
