CSO presents “Celebrating John Williams”

April 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

CSO presents “Celebrating John Williams” on Saturday 20th April 2024, 7.30 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. in the Douglas Lilburn Auditorium, Christchurch Town Hall, Kilmore Street, Christchurch.

John Williams has succeeded in connecting people around the world to the sounds of the orchestra through his epic film soundtracks. 

In this concert, CSO Chief Conductor Benjamin Northey plays the role of friendly host and conductor, guiding audiences through the best of John Williams – works that stand alone as some of the most enchanting and powerful orchestral music ever written.  During his glittering seven-decade career John Williams has evoked the threat of sharks using just two repeated low notes, transported us to galaxies far, far away, drawn us into the magic of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft an Wizardry, and created the super sounds of flying comic book characters.  Bring the whole family and immerse yourself in the wonder of the orchestra as CSO performs John Williams hits from iconic films including Jaws, Schindler’s List, Harry Potter, Superman, Jurassic Park, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Star Wars.
