Trick or Treat

Last year we added this concert to our season, and it was frightening as well as a lot of fun.

We will be wearing our most frightful and delightful costumes, and encourage audience members to do the same. This concert will feature music by Danny Elfman, John Williams and others. One of the musical highlights will be the popular Night on Bald Mountain by Russian composer Modeste Moussorsky.

In our final concert of the season, the Reno Wind Symphony will perform some of the greatest film scores of John Williams, the Master of Movie Music.

 

Nominated for more than 40 Oscars, and winner of five, John Williams is one of the most famous and most acclaimed composers ever. From disaster movies of the 1970s through to the present day, Williams has written thundering themes for many of the most successful films of all time, and shows no sign of slowing down at the
age of 85. The RWS, with video accompaniment, will try to answer the question – which 10 of the more than 100 film scores he has written are the best?
