John Williams the music of Star Wars

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

John Williams’s scores for Star Wars are some of the most iconic pieces of music ever written for the cinema. Tonight, as Stormtroopers and Jedi Knights across the universe celebrate Star Wars Day and the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi, we perform musical highlights from the whole saga  – from The Phantom Menace to The Rise of Skywalker. And if you think it sounds good in the cinema, wait till you hear it played live by the full Royal Northern Sinfonia and Chorus!
