John Williams Favorites
Naples Philharmonic Pops

Naples Philharmonic
Jack Everly, principal pops conductor

Few contemporary composers are as accomplished and beloved as John Williams. A master of his craft, Williams has spent decades creating award-winning film scores that have elevated some of Hollywood’s most thrilling films with their sophisticated and memorable melodies. It often takes only a few notes of one of these musical themes for us to be transported back to some of our favorite cinematic experiences. Join us for a night celebrating John Williams’ greatest hits as Jack Everly and the Naples Philharmonic perform a selection of his most iconic film scores. The program includes music from crowd favorites such as Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter and more!

Music and Museum
Naples Philharmonic Pops tickets include same-day admission to The Baker Museum. Museum hours on day of performance: 10am-8pm. In addition, the doors to Hayes Hall will open 60 minutes prior to this performance. Arrive early to enjoy the exhibitions and light fare available at Heidi's Place.
