I hope it's OK if I post Mike Mattessino's recent Facebook post here, since there were no pertinent details about the illness other than to comfort us all a little bit -- which we need right now:

Unlike many of you on this forum, it will be my first time listening to the music of John Williams performed live in concert. As I begin my 6 hour journey to London, I feel slightly melancholic due to

There's still a lot to look forward to people. I'm more concerned about his health, to be honest.    Karol

If we look at programs of concerts JW did in the last 2-3 years, it's always a mixture of his classic works and selections from recent ones. I guess the London concert will follow the same pattern. As other have already pointed out, I'm not too picky in what he selects to perform. For me it's the experience in itself that matters, i.e. seeing him conducting his music live in such an historic venue with one of the world's best orchestras. I'm pretty sure this concert will be a particularly thrilling experience.

This is the first time I’ll be seeing Williams conducting in the flesh so I’m hugely excited. What are his concerts like? Is it usually 2 hours of music with an interval? Does he speak much or tell any anecdotes in between pieces of music?

Been away from the Forum for a while...hope everybody is fine.

Going to both London (thanks to one of the guys here) and Vienna (twice)!

Haven't checked, but has there been something organised by JWFAN, like t-shirts or plans to get together, or trying to get to meet JW as a group afterwards?

Hello everyone :)

 

Probably it has already been discussed somewhere, but...

 

What's the dress code for the concert ? This is my FIRST JW Concert, something that I've been awaiting since 1989.... I don't really know how it works at the RAH... :D

 

Thank you

 

Alessandro
