ESO, Kudos, and Music From ‘Star Wars’
The May 7 program featured iconic music from Star Wars, with such movements as “Princess Leia’s Theme,” and “Yoda’s Theme.” John Williams, one of the most famous movie compsers ever, also composed the music for motion pictures including E.T., Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List.

ESO conductor Lawrence Eckerling came onstage dressed as Darth Vader, and three musicians from the orchestra sported Princess Leia hairdos.
