Get ready Star Wars Fans, because this one is for you! A huge concert dedicated to our favourite movie is coming to a symphony close to you very soon. I don’t know about you, but my inner child is screaming right now. This concert will have all the classic Star Wars music we know and love because who doesn’t want to listen to the cantina music live?
The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra has announced that they will be hosting the ever-popular Star Wars concert in symphony this summer at the Orpheum Theatre. Starting July 4, 2019, you will have three different opportunities to catch the big show.
This isn’t where the goodness stops! Not only will you get to listen to the beautiful score of the movie, but you will also get to watch it! That's right. The movie will play in the background as the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra perfectly performs the music live.
According to the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, the movie will be Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. That means the band will play chill-inducing songs like The Asteroid Field, Imperial March, and The Battle Of Hoth live. The nostalgia is real!
This is not the first time the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra has done an epic showing of a classic movie. Over the holiday season, the orchestra brought a new take to the Christmas classic, Home Alone!
Don’t worry if Star Wars isn’t your thing. The orchestra is also performing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince this spring.
The Empire Strikes Back symphony has become a really big hit with fans! It even took over Victoria and Toronto last month. Be sure to keep a look out for it as it could be coming to other Canadian cities.
This 90-minute performance will give you a whole new appreciation for the movie. Tickets for the show will go on sale today and can be purchased on the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra website. All three shows will run at 7 PM making it the perfect after work event.
We strongly suggest buying your tickets early as you don’t want to miss this. The countdown is on, Jedi masters!
