The World of John Williams concert was absolutely fantastic. Hearing a live orchestra added another dimension to the music beyond that of my well worn compact discs. It was also inspiring to see the enthusiasm and dedication of the young Eminence orchestra members, refreshing to see people dedicated to their craft and enjoying themselves at the same time.
The program included music from all Star Wars movies, except Return of the Jedi, and including the first Australian performance of Revenge of the Sith’s Battle of the Heroes. Other pieces played included music from Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World, ET and Schindler’s List.
I can’t wait to hear more from the Eminence Orchestra and I hope that they will have many more film music concerts in future.
