'The Empire Strikes Back' feat. The Boise Philharmonic

by

The iconic Star Wars Original Trilogy was a groundbreaking feat in the Sci-Fi film world. Director George Lucas' vision brought the genre to the forefront of American pop culture. A significant part of Star Wars' impact was the music, conducted by John Williams. The opening theme, the Imperial March and other numbers from the movies paired classical music with space battles and Jedi adventures that helped make the movies timeless. The Boise Philharmonic will perform the live score of perhaps the most-loved movie of the Star Wars trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back, at the Morrison Center. The movie follows the ragtag gang of Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker as they attempt to evade Imperial forces.

7:30 p.m. $41-$83. Morrison Center, 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane, Boise, boisephil.org.
