I wrote to them once. 9 months later, I recieved an envelope from them, with a Q&A interview with JW, as well as a signed picture of him. I'm not sure if they'll give you your sheet music, but it's worth a try.

As Indy4 said, the best thing to do is contact Williams' agents.
I need to obtain the score of an old, short piece of John Williams piano music. I figure the fastest way to accompish this is to write to him or his agent. Does anyone know an address, either e-mail or snail that I could try. Also I welcome any pratical, workable solution to my need. Thank you.
By the way, what piece are you looking for? I woder if you mean the 1951 Piano Sonata... because that one was a very early student piece, that I'm quite sure doesn't even exists anymore...

"John Williams will go down as one of the greatest composers." -- Leonard Slatkin, american conductor
"Ah yes, the Olympics. The quadrennial event where composer John Williams collects a hefty royalty check from NBC."

Try sending up smoke signals. It worked for the cowboys.
JW is no dinosaur! He needs...

I know someone who knows one of their emails. But he's not allowed to share it.
What about John Williams' publicist? Anyone know who that is now? It used to be Ronnie Chasen, as far as I know, but as we all know she died tragically a couple of years ago.

Does anyone know who John Williams' current publicist is?
If you have this info, but would like to keep it private, please PM me. It's a professional request.

"Let me say, however, there is no "next" John Williams. Sadly, he is unique--- a figure who simultaneously embodies and transcends the music of all the masters of film music who preceded him (much like Brahms and Wagner of the Romantic era). He comes from a time when the craft of music in film was still one of the ear, heart and mind. Today, sadly, the craft is largely technical. Most composers do not conceive their music "inwardly" but rather at the computer--- and with rather limited skills, musically, at that. The inner spirit knows no boundaries--- our plastic abilities, sadly, do. John is a man of spirit, heart, intellect and soaring music." -- Conrad Pope about John Williams

Try to get in touch through the Boston Symphony management. They usually reply with much kindness.
Thanks. Why didn't I think of that?
