John Williams Favorites
Naples Philharmonic Pops
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!
