The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra celebrates John Williams… the man and the magic of his music.
The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra plays all of the well-loved movie scores plus more of legendary composer John Williams for its first solo concert to be held on September 2, 6PM at the Meralco Theater.
Dubbed as “The Magic of John Williams”, the concert celebrates the composer's 80th birthday and will feature most of his contribution to film music in the six decades of his career. From the adventurous bicycle chase in E.T. to the thrilling sea hunt in Jaws, the haunting melodies of "Schindler's List" and the romantic flying scene in Superman, Williams has helped immortalize these characters on the big screen through both the sweeping grandeur and tender emotions of his music.
The orchestra together with Music Director and Conductor Gerard Salonga are all big fans of the man who has surpassed greatness; because of his music. “Everyone’s excited to start with the rehearsals, we bought the pieces from the US exclusively just for this show, these pieces are authentic works of John Williams.” said Salonga.
Other movie scores in the repertoire include themes from Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Harry Potter, Yes Giorgio plus the 1984 Olympics Anthem. Guest performers are Karylle and Mr. Jose Mari Chan plus a special added attraction of the Philippine Outpost 501st, an international organization of Star Wars fans who wear costumes from the movies!
