Merrillville, IN – Join the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra and Music Director/Conductor Kirk Muspratt as they start their 78th season with “The Music of John Williams,” with two performances, Thursday, September 19 and Friday, September 20, both at 7:30 pm at the Auditorium at Living Hope Church.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest American composers, John Williams has composed some of the most popular, recognizable, and critically acclaimed film scores in cinematic history in a career spanning 65 years. Williams has won 24 Grammy Awards, five Academy Awards, and four Golden Globe Awards. With 51 Academy Award nominations, he is the second most-nominated individual, after Walt Disney. In 2005, the American Film Institute selected Williams's score to 1977's Star Wars as the greatest American film score of all time. Hear selections from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Superman, Harry Potter, and more in this tribute to an American icon.
After a season of following the music to a number of local venues, the Symphony is happy to announce they have a new home, the Auditorium at Living Hope Church, 9000 Taft Street, on the Merrillville/Crown Point border.
“We received so many rave reviews of this venue last year, from its intimate setting to it superb acoustics, we are so excited for everyone to experience it,” Maestro Muspratt said. “One Symphony. One Home.”
