Lauded for masterful scores that capture the very essence of film, John Williams is considered one of the greatest composers of our time. His themes for movies including E.T., Jurassic Park, Star Wars, and many others, have become iconic in film history. The MDSO, joined by special guest violinist, Kinga Augustyn, will perform some of the most dramatic musical moments from these movies. Alongside the heartrending theme to Schindler’s List, this concert features Augustyn’s “stylish and vibrant” playing in compositions by the Polish-Jewish composer, Henryk Wieniawski.
