For more than six decades John Williams has created the soundtrack of our lives, composing memorable film scores that have garnered five Academy Awards and fifty-three Oscar nominations, as well as acclaimed concert works and Olympic anthems. Ken-David Masur conducts the New York Philharmonic in a night of Williams’s most popular music, with the composer himself sharing the podium. Special guest Steven Spielberg presents some of the iconic scores from their many films together, featuring a selection of memorable clips projected in the new, state-of-the-art facilities of the Wu Tsai Theater at David Geffen Hall.
