We'll get the tickets. I have a feeling. The VIP ones! :)

Ever the optimist. I like that. :D

This may turn out to be quite a JWFan reunion. We'll need to plan accordingly--none of this "quick drink" beforehand. We need to make it an event.

Why, that's a helluva idea! :) I totally agree, it would be so cool to actually have a reunion! Let's do it! :D

So, as the time draws near I'd like to ask who is also attending this concert, so we could maybe meet and go for a drink before the concert? In case you haven't yet bought the tickets they are still available here (second and third tiers are sold out but there are still (expensive :P) tickets left in first tier and orchestra).

I'll be there too. This will be my second time in NYC. Needless to say, I have fantastic memories of my first stay back in 2008 and am thrilled to go back to attend the concert. :D

I paid $225 for my ticket. I didn't really want to pay that much, but the last time he was in NYC was 2007, and he's 79 now. He may never come back to NYC after this, so I figured I'd go for it.

Yeah, I was thinking along the same lines and so was MAG-SI and since we're from that far away, we also felt this was our last chance and one not to be missed. We fly to NYC in exactly one month, so we're pretty much starting the final countdown today ... :)

So, at the moment, there are 4 of us: Joe Brausam, obiwan71, MAG-SI and yours truly, but how about many others - Maurizio, JWfangirl1992, proteussyndrome, Yoda75 and Johnnyecks who all expressed interest/intention to attend this concert? ;)

I'm also attending. Given JW's age, this may be my last chance to see him in concert so I've treated myself to VIP orchestra tickets. I only saw him once before at Tanglewood in 2005.

Can't wait!

Sadly, I can't join the posse... Family and work obligations prevented me to set up this trip. However, I've already seen JW in concert two times and I even snagged him for a picture, so I can say I already had my moment of glory :)

Enjoy the concert and have the time of your life!

The website didn't post a program yet, but FSMO posted this blurb about iron their concerts listing....

Oct. 25, New York City, Avery Fisher Hall, John Williams, cond.; “John Williams Conducts the New York Philhamonic,” featuring Spartacus (North), Vertigo (Herrmann), various Williams works, and accompanying film clips.


I'm really excited to hear Spartacus live, that will be awesome!

I think it's likely Williams will perform something from Tintin as a surprise encore.

It's just speculation on my part, I wish I could know more! :)

Since the movie will open in those very days in Europe, I thought maybe JW could make a nice Tintin present to an American audience.

That would surely be nice but what matters more to me right now is how we could corner him for some autographs and photos after the concert! :P Does anybody who has already been to the Avery Fisher Hall have any idea where he might come out of the building after the concert so we could wait for him there?

Will anybody be recording this (just in case they DO play some Tintin?

Among all the things I have done in my short and pitiful life, becoming an inside joke on JWFAN is the one I'm the least proud of.


The additional passage was interesting but not really something I would consider absolutely essential.

The only part I was planning on recording was Spartacus.

That being said, last time Williams conducted the Phil they put the recording on their site for a limited time the following March or April, I believe.

Sure thing, I'm game and hopefully the others are too! :) I think maybe after the concert would be even better since we could exchange impressions, opinions etc., though I'm somewhat worried I won't be able to speak, especially if I manage to meet the man after the concert! :D

But we somehow have to agree on something which will enable us to recognise each other as JWFan guys, anybody have any idea? :)

So, coming to this concert are: MAG-SI, Joe Brausam, obiwan71, dfenton85 and Maglorfin. Did I forget anybody? Yoda75 and Johnnyecks, are you guys coming?

Same, 100 more than back in 07 but for the same logic. If this is his last show here I want to make damn sure I got a decent seat =]

EDIT: Back in 04 when I went he came out through the garage immediately got into his limo and left, I was so close I got there as he was stepping in. Last time I hanged around after the Open Rehearsal (which I am quite upset they arent doing this year) and he was signing autographs but by the time I got to the front he was leaving -__-. Bit of bad luck for me

After the concert works best for me anyway, because I'll be rushing to get to the concert as it is! I can't get out of work until 5pm that day..

Ways to identify each other....I'm not creative enough to come up with an idea! But I'll definitely be heading for the stage door after the concert to try and catch him, so seeing as I'm sure we all plan to do that it might be a good spot to agree on meeting each other. I'm having a tough time deciding what I'd like to get signed though, if I get the opportunity!

According to the Phil's Facebook, Gil Shaham will be at the concert too! He'll be performing the solos for Schindler's List, Fiddler on the Roof, and Scent of a Woman (Por Una Cabeza). Should be really cool to have him there!

I think I'll bring the Born on the Fourth of July signature edition score for him to sign, if there is the opportunity. I have a strong emotional connection with that score, so I figure it would be appropriate.

Edit: Haha Faleel, you guys can have fun with that. I have no need, teenage girl at a John Williams concert I'll stick out like a sore thumb lol

Well, I feel a bit silly. I posted the following in a new thread (thanks whomever moved it), not noticing this one and the asking of similar questions!! Sorry guys! Any info on that stage door would be most welcome!!
_______________________________________________________
Hello to all! I feel a bit cheeky asking this, not being a regular poster, but here goes. I'm flying in from Ireland next Monday, with the sole purpose of attending the concert with the New York Philharmonic next Tuesday (I fly home on Wednesday!!). As a life long fan of the Maestro, this will be a huge tick off my bucket list. I was wondering if it's worth my while bringing along anything for him to sign. Does anyone know if he signs at the stage door at his concerts or is it purely down to luck, being in the right place at the right time? Attending the concert will be unbelievably brilliant, I know it will; getting a chance to meet him, even for a couple of seconds and thank him for the music would be incredible. Has anyone had the pleasure or can anyone offer advice? Many thanks.

Williams does not have a history of signing things at the NY Phil concerts. In fact, if I remember correctly JWFanGirl got royally snubbed at the last one.

That being said, it's worth the try. I'll certainly be waiting for him!

I wasn't completely snubbed, but I believe I was 15 at the last concert and I was waiting by the stage of the Open Rehearsal as he was talking to the head violinist and I was like calling his name trying to get his attention with a few other people and he ignored us all. Not gonna lie I was pretty upset, especially only being fifteen but he is a busy man.

I definitely am going to be a little more aggressive in trying to get his autograph this time especially if it may be my last opportunity!
