Space opera junkies rejoice! Symphony Silicon Valley’s ongoing Movies in Concert series presents Star Wars: A New Hope. Watch Han shoot first on the big screen and feel the force of a full orchestra perform John Williams’ legendary Oscar-winning score, led by Jeffrey Schindler. With a résumé long enough to make Bach blush, Schindler boasts more than 250 production credits and is a skilled conductor, orchestrator, arranger, maestro and an organist and harpsichordist to boot. The symphony will give four shows over the weekend, so grab a ticket or go hang with the rest of the nerf herders.
