Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra celebrates the musical brilliance of John Williams, undoubtedly one of the world's most prolific and respected film composers. As the most Oscar-nominated man alive, John Williams has unleashed the power of the film score in over seventy-five blockbuster classics, creating one of the greatest film composer/director collaborations ever with the great Steven Spielberg.

The Orchestra will perform a handful of his superb orchestrations and legendary melodies, including music from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, E.T., Harry Potter, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Superman, Jaws, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List, Hook, Fiddler on the Roof, Home Alone, War Horse and many more!

From the bleak and haunting Main Theme from Schindler’s List to the twinkling and mischievous opening to Harry Potter, this concert is full of the magic of the movies that you know and love. Packed with action, adventure and a galaxy far, far away, don’t miss your chance to hear the remarkable music of John Williams performed live in Cambridge.
