We are enthusiastic about the premier of the latest Star Wars episode just as much as you!!!  All theories about the plot aside, we are especially excited for new film because of the soundtrack music we get to play it!

We already have TWO Star Wars pieces in our repertoire: the Main Theme and the Throne Room & End Finale.  Have a listen to the fantastic string quartet versions:

John Williams, the composer of the Star Wars music, has scored each of the Star Wars episodes as well as composing music for nearly eighty films, including Schindler’s List, Harry PotterSupermanJurrasic Park, and the Indiana Jones trilogy.  He attended UCLA for composition and later the Julliard School for piano studies.  His impressive work for films has earned him five Academy Awards, seventeen Grammys, three Golden Globes, two Emmys and five BAFTA Awards from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.  Williams has also worked on music not just for films but also solely ensembles and even themes for several Summer Olympics.
