The music of John Williams has transported us beyond our imagination. To new worlds. Through heart-pounding adventures. Be there as Pacific Symphony, led by Principal Pops Conductor Laureate Richard Kaufman, performs all your John Williams favorites: Superman, Indiana Jones, Jaws, and of course, Star Wars. The force is with you for this 90th birthday celebration of cinema’s symphonic master.

Come dressed as your favorite character from one of John Williams' iconic films!

While John Williams will not be present at this celebration, we will have a 90th Birthday Guestbook available in the main lobby in which you can write birthday greetings to the movie maestro.
