  1. It's going back to the USA for the first time since 2018 The San Diego Symphony Orchestra. Friday, November 20th , 2020 https://www.sandiegosymphony.org/tickets-events/2020-21-season/fox-theatre-film-series/
  2. I've checked the above link for tickets and it's dead. I've checked the website of the above venue and I'm not seeing this program among their list of events. And CineConcerts longer has that event listed in their 'Passion' page.
  3. Cancelled! (see announcement on link above).
  4. November 8, 2020 Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Justin Freer, conductor Hilbert Circle Theatre. Indianapolis, IN https://www.indianapolissymphony.org/event-detail/rudy
  5. San Francisco, CA April 2nd and 3rd, 2021 The San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. David Newman, conductor https://www.sfsymphony.org/Buy-Tickets/2020-21/Film-SKYFALL-in-Concert
  6. https://www.cineconcerts.com/the-passion-of-the-christ World Premiere: April 11, 2020 Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, IL Currently in Pre-Sale! Use code: MARYTickets on sale Feb 21 at 10 AM CST https://tickets.auditoriumtheatre.org/production/3001/passionchrist/
  7. Those of you who have attended any of the performances of SW:ROTJ this weekend by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, can now buy single tickets purchases, for March 2021's concert of SW:TLJ. You have to show proof of purchase for the ROTJ and TFA tickets. You can also get 20% off the ticket purchases for both SW:TFA and SW:TFA by the NJSO. Use the promo code ‘JEDI.’ I found this out by their promotion being displayed on the theatre screen at the auditorium where the orchestra performs. During this time of year in the USA, single ticket purchases for a concert season that begins in September usually do not go on sale until the summer. If you want to buy a seat for your choice show, now, you would have to buy a minimum of four different shows. That is called buying a ‘Subscription.’ I already really have my choice seat.
  8. New booking for SW:TLJ Toronto, Ontario, Canada May 13th, 14th, and 15th, 2021 Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Steven Reineke, conductor. https://www.tso.ca/concert/star-wars-last-jedi-concert#performance-2599
  9. If the studio is still holding firm on that target release date, then it would make sense for DisneyConcerts to start issuing L2P concerts of, at least one, of the remaining 'Indy' films, for the sake of promoting the 'Indy' brand. How many orchestras in the world have yet to play the 'Raiders' L2P concert since it debuted in 2016?
  10. World Premiere: City Light Symphony Orchestra. Thiago Tiberio, conductor KKL Luzern Concert Hall, Luzern, Switzerland December 4th and 5th, 2020 https://www.citylightconcerts.ch/event/dances-with-wolves-kkl-luzern/ Finally, John Barry is getting’ some L2P love.
  11. SW:TLJ in America, baby: The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, March 19-21, 2021 https://www.njsymphony.org/events/detail/star-wars-the-last-jedi-in-concert
  12. The LLL CD set gave us two slightly different versions of the main title cue from ST:TMP. The only difference is in the pick-up measure (or ‘anacrusis’ measure)--the incomplete measure just before the first full measure in a score. The first sound from this cue that we hear in the pick-up measure is from one instrument-the percussion. In the film version of the main tile, conducted by Lionel Newman, the percussion in the pick-up measure was a snare drum. In the album version, conducted by Goldsmith, the percussion was a timpani. My first Goldsmtih album was ST:TMP and I was listening to it years before I would see the film for the first time via ABC-TV’s network television premiere airing. I prefer the film version of the main title because the booming-ness of the snare drum gets your attention.
  13. I suspect that these music quotations (or 'tracking') from previous SW scores, specifically the ’77-’83 trilogy, are not all of Williams' ideas, at least not the bulk of it. Take the Sail Barge Assault sequence from ROTJ. Williams first music cue for that sequence was completely original. His replacement cue for that same sequence was riddled with quotes from ANH. My thinking is that as long as Lucas is bringing back the Death Star, why not bring back some of the music from ANH. Now for TROS, I fell that putting in these musical reference from past SW scores was at Abrams’ suggestion as one of the ways to bring back old-school Star Wars fans that were lost during TLJ.
  14. I'm hoping DisneyConcerts will put out, at least, one Indy LTP concert sometime in 2020. What other orchestras in this world have yet to do the Raiders LTP since it premiered in January of 2016?
  15. Eventhough we may not get the theatrical cuts of the original trilogy, I hope that one of the special features will be an audio track of the on-the-set production audio for each of the original-trilogy films. Hearing David Prowse talk in that helmet always cracks me up.
