No one has composed more inspired and recognizable soundtracks than the illustrious John Williams. For Space Coast Symphony Orchestra Conductor and Artistic Director, Aaron T. Collins, The Best of John Williams is an homage to the composer’s greatness.
“Music is such a huge component of any film,” said Collins. “Excitement, color, power, drama –it’s everything. And by any standard, John Williams’ film music ranks at the very top.”
