John Williams Concert

Back in February we had bought tickets for a concert with John Williams conducting but they ended up canceling because Mr. Williams had hurt his back. We were so happy to find out that they rescheduled the concert for a few days before we left Pittsburgh. We had decided that because Anne and Andrew are such big fans of the movies that John Williams wrote the music for that we would take them with us. We were also lucky enough to have Hava join us for one more Pittsburgh concert.

Here we are acting out our favorite John Williams movie. I am doing ET, Zac is doing Star Wars (note the light saber), Anne is doing Harry Potter (note the wand) and Andrew is also doing Harry Potter.

We weren't supposed to take pictures during the concert but I am glad Hava broke the rule. They played music from Harry Potter, ET, Indiana Jones, Close Encounters, Memoirs of a Geisha, Schindler's List and of course Star Wars. For a few of the songs they lowered a screen and played clips of the movies while they played. It was so cool to see John Williams conduct his own music. He even took a few moments before each song to tell us a little bit about the music, he really is a funny guy. This will always be a great memory for us.

Beautiful building! And we're so excited you got to go. We made the picture of Mr. Williams bigger and you can sure tell it's him even from behind. What a thrill for those playing in the orchestra, and for you and your kids.
