Going to be a Prom concert for JW on July 20th 2017. Unfortunately he won't be there but plenty of his music.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/enfmbp

It is usually possible to listen to the Proms anywhere in the world via the BBC Radio website up to a week afterwards.

Wonderful, Cal. I'm not sure what else there is to say about the final installment of the era of Star Wars scores by the maestro Williams.

I just saw the movie yesterday, and it will take two or three more viewings to take it all in and notice how the score works with the film. I did sit through the credits, and perhaps I missed it, but curiously I didn't see an original score credit. I saw Williams credited for orchestrations, which led me to believe perhaps there were no new themes in this last installment, but you seem to have laid that doubt to rest.

Now that the saga is complete, I heartily agree a fresh listen to all the albums is indeed in order!

Short video (5 min) bts for JW & IX: ROS – not just the music but also about his cameo in the film. (also Abrams, Daisy, and Mark putting in appearances)

Thanks for posting that Mojo, that's a great video Smile

In the same series there is a video of ~11 minutes about John Williams working on his last Star Wars https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-g2LNSUowHc
