The SuperPops concert for March 2019 allows conductor Neal Gittleman and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra to further explore the vast repertoire of composer John Williams. The previous concert was a Miami Valley audience favorite, and this concert proves to be just as exciting.

Often called “America’s composer,” John Williams has been creating movie music since 1959. Over the years, Williams has won 18 Grammys and had 41 Oscar nominations, with 5 of those winning—for Jaws, Star Wars (Episode IV), ET, Schindler’s List, and Fiddler on the Roof’s adaptation to film. The soundtrack for Star Wars (Episode IV) is the best-selling score-only soundtrack of all time. The Williams musical magic continued through many blockbuster movie favorites, such as the Jurassic Park series and the Harry Potter films. But there have been countless other films musically enhanced by this prolific composer, from Munich and its Grammy-winning “A Prayer for Peace” to Memoirs of a Geisha, Lincoln, Saving Private Ryan, and most recently, The Post. In addition, Williams currently serves as the Conductor Laureate for the Boston Pops. 

Although there may not be popcorn served at the Schuster, you’ll certainly feel as though you’ve spent a night at the movies!
