I had the pleasure of attending the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performing the music of Star Wars: A New Hope live to the film. It was an amazing experience and if you get a chance, go! The performance was adored by the public, who included many people that are not traditional orchestral performance attendees, just the common folk ;-). The recognition these types of performances give to classical music is so inspiring and it is brilliant to see a living composer (John Williams) be held in such high regard. Here are a few pics from the night.
