John Williams has composed some of the most well-known and beloved movie music in history. Since the Star Wars saga began in 1977 through the most recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the music of Star Wars has defined a unique, spectacular place in the galaxy of great cinematic soundtracks. Now, the New Mexico Philharmonic plays the best of Star Wars and more. May the force of the NMPhil be with you!
