The LA Philharmonic opened its 2014/2015 season in a big way: with a gala and concert in celebration of composer John Williams. The program, led by music director Gustavo Dudamel, solely featured Williams’ compositions and included performances by master violinist Itzhak Perlman and a Star Wars video installation by Netia Jones—including new video content for the performance of Williams’ Soundings, first performed at the 2003 opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall—and a unique video installation featuring concept art from the Lucasfilm archive.
