It's in the stars.

Continuing on this classical Pops weekend, this post is about the greatest American orchestral composer for the movies, John Williams.  There have been so many great melodies and movie themes from this awesome American composer. 

In a career spanning almost six decades, this five time Academy award winner has composed some of the most recognizable film scores in the history of motion pictures, including the Star Wars saga, Jaws, Superman, the Indiana Jones films, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Hook, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, Home Alone and the first three Harry Potter films.   Would any of those great, great movies have been the same without Williams orchestral scores?   I don't think so

From one of my favorite movies, Star Wars comes one of my favorite pieces from John Williams, The Imperial March.
