So... I've bought tickets for the Saturday November 9 show! I plan to buy tickets for the Sunday Nov. 10 as well, but they will only start selling tickets for that next August (probably because it's part of a different series).
This is turning out my most American year ever: next month I'll spend a couple of weeks touring California with friends, while in November I'll fly to Chicago to see JW. I'll probably be broke by the end of the year... but, boy, I have means now to do this, hence better for me to jump on the wagon now!
"It's still baffling to me. I sit down with a pencil and a piece of paper and do my best... The remarkable thing is that my music is heard by billions of people." --John Williams
"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
