Legendary composer John Williams and renowned violinist Gil Shaham join the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to perform Williams’ lush and virtuosic Violin Concerto. The work is paired with selections from some of the composer's most memorable film scores, including Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T. The Extra-terrestrial and Lincoln, a 2013 Academy Award nominee for which the CSO and Chorus recorded the original soundtrack. This presentation will also be seen on non-subscription special presentations on November 8 and 9.
