May the 4th is just around the corner—a day known throughout geek culture as Star Wars Day, due to the pun on famous words from the classic trilogy. To stretch the celebration till the end of the month, the Colorado Symphony has scheduled a themed concert for May the 31st, highlighting “An Evening of Star Wars.”
The Symphony promises the night to be filled with wond'rous compositions that “span the Milky Way.” Regardless of whether audiences side with the Imperials or Rebel Alliance, the Symphony guarantees a full range of familiar themes and possibly even new favourites.
Andrew Litton has been music director for the Colorado Symphony since last September. His background includes guest-conducting for leading orchestras across the globe. He's attached to a discography of over 120 recordings that have received many awards such as America's Grammy and France's Diapason d'Or. A full biography of Litton's background can be found on his website.
“An Evening of Star Wars” is part of Colorado Symphony's mission to bring the beauty of past classical compositions together with modern melodies. They aim to transform the musical experience and transport everyday listeners to a world of diverse musical appreciation.
