Our afternoon, spent at the St Kilda Palais Theatre.
Star Wars, The Force Awakens in Concert with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO).
The movie was shown and the orchestra played the soundtrack music written by John Williams.
Words can't explain the goosebumps felt when the opening score of that well known music was played.
Conductor Nicholas Bluc.
As the credits came up the orchestra played the final of the soundtrack to a standing ovation.
A magically wonderful afternoon for someone who isn't a Star Wars fan.
The MSO's next concert is in February 2018, Star Wars "A New Hope" in Concert, the first of the Star Wars movies playing at the Hamer Hall.
November 2018 is Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azakaban in Concert with the MSO at Plenary, MCEC.
