It is a great pleasure and honor for me to introduce music from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to be performed in Hyogo PAC's Silvester Concert. I owe this opportunity to the generosity and cooperation of my longtime friend John Williams. As you may know, he was my predecessor as Conductor of the Boston Pops, and his music remains very important in our repertoire. This will be the world-premiere concert performance of the new score -- I hope you enjoy John's latest work, performed with a full-sized orchestra, live in concert! Keith Lockhart .
