RSNO at the movies: the Music of Star Wars
Hollywood magic and the music of Star Wars is coming to Edinburgh’s Usher Hall, Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall and Perth’s Concert Hall. Capital Document Solutions are proud to sponsor more Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) performances this year.
The music of legendary composer John Williams – who penned the scores of countless blockbusters, such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and also Jurassic Park – will be performed by the RSNO. Previous years have also seen us sponsor other John Williams concerts.
Grammy Award-wining conductor Richard Kaufman will once again be leading the RSNO through more Tinsel Town magic. The concerts take place on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of February.
Full details and limited tickets for the four Music of Star Wars concerts are available to buy via the RSNO’s website.
John Williams’s scores for Star Wars are some of the most unforgettable music ever written for the cinema.
The concerts will allow an experience of the whole saga – from The Phantom Menace to A New Hope, from The Empire Strikes Back to The Force Awakens. If you think they sound good in the cinema, wait until you hear it played live by the full RSNO!
Tom Flockhart, Founder & Managing Director of Capital Document Solutions, said:
“John Williams’s compositions are some of the most recognisable pieces of all time. We’re delighted to be sponsoring these performances.
“The RSNO is composed of some of Scotland’s most talented musicians. I’m thrilled we have been able to continue our partnership, which over the years has brought some amazing concerts to the country’s top venues.”
