  1. I don’t listen to classical and film music on Spotify. Only once in a great while if I want to sample something. And I’m currently on a Williams sabbatical, the only time I listened to him this year was when I saw him in concert, the Obi-Wan theme and I did give Fabelmans a listen on Spotify while I wait for the CD to arrive.
  2. ToD is the only Indy sequel that tries to distance itself from Raiders. That’s also what makes it the best Indy sequel. This latest one looks no different, all throughout I’m sure we’ll be reminded how great Raiders was. The new one, judging by the trailer, looks very dull visually. The same monochromatic colorless look that all movies these days have. Hopefully the finished film will not look so dreary and dull, but I’m not holding my breath on that…
  3. So, my Dad (who still gets newspapers, bless him) saved me the review of this concert from the Washington Post. It was the U.S. Army Herald Trumpets, per the article.
  4. Also needs mentioning: The Olympic Fanfare and Theme was a killer performance. The brass from the Marine Corps band (I think it was…?) joined the orchestra and they absolutely nailed it. Anyone get a picture of that?
  5. The Duel with Mutter and Ma was a back and forth between violin and cello, they made gestures towards each other throughout and at a couple points drew their bows at each other. It was pretty fun. Here they are after The Duel while the audience applauds. The crowd laughed at their sparring during the piece.
  6. The Superman March was played over a fantastic montage of stills and clips of Williams, some of which I’ve never seen. I hope someone got that, it was great. After Throne Room, all of the guests returned to the stage together to applaud Johnny. The orchestra started playing Happy Birthday and the entire concert hall sang to him. Then gold streamers and confetti shot out from the balconies. Deneve then handed Williams the baton and motioned him towards the podium. Williams conducted The Imperial March, the only encore.
  7. Daisy Ridley made an appearance and sang John a sultry rendition of “Happy Birthday”
  8. I figured he was somewhere in the audience, I was looking around for him. So cool to realize he was right upstairs from me. If my seats were a couple more to my left I wouldn’t have been able to see him sitting up there. I didn’t get any pics of him conducting, the ushers were quite strict with that. But I did snap these two
  9. Williams was sitting in the balcony right over our seats during the first half.
  10. “The Eleventh Commandment” has that biblical/resurrection vibe.
  11. I am so tempted to go to the JP LTP but I don't think I can swing it... please document all questions asked and answered.
