Toronto Symphony Orchestra


Presents the world premiere of


2 nights only! June 28th and 29th
at Roy Thomson Hall

Tickets on sale Wednesday,
June 1st at 12noon!

Break out the light sabres for a monumental musical event! Erich Kunzel and members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra are traveling to a musical galaxy far, far away for the world premiere of THE STAR WARS CONCERT featuring the most powerful music from all six episodes. For two nights only, Tuesday, June 28th and Wednesday, June 29th, Star Wars enthusiasts can experience the complete musical saga at Roy Thomson Hall. The concert also features dramatic choruses from the films, performed by the Mississauga Choral Society, a regular guest on the TSO’s Pops series.

Special Guest, British Actor Anthony Daniels, who has played the fussy and worry-prone protocol droid C-3PO in all of the Star Wars films will narrate THE STAR WARS CONCERT. In his words, "If I told you half the things I’ve heard about the concert, you’d probably short circuit!"

From the famous trumpet fanfare of Episode IV: A New Hope to the pummeling rhythms of the Battle of the Heroes from Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, composer John Williams’ themes have become icons in themselves. Deemed "an epic triumph" by The New York Times, the music from the final episode will be a highlight of THE STAR WARS CONCERT. With over 100 film scores to his credit, including Jaws, E.T., Superman, Schindler’s List, and the soon to be released War of the Worlds, Williams creates classic musical moments that become integral to the films.

Cincinnati Pops Orchestra Conductor, frequent TSO Guest Conductor and longtime friend and collaborator of John Williams, Erich Kunzel is behind the creation of this event. Kunzel is the most successful Billboard Classical Crossover Artist in history and an expert interpreter of the Star Wars score. Sanctioned by George Lucas, THE STAR WARS CONCERT in Toronto is the first and only Canadian date before the show travels to the US to be performed by orchestras in Chicago, Seattle, Cleveland, Denver and Cincinnati.

Musical purists will detect hints of Elgar, Korngold and Stravinsky, with overtones of Wagner in the orchestral soundtrack. Diehard fans will relive the cinematic experience. And everyone will embrace the force of the Star Wars legacy!
