About This Performance
John Williams is one of the greatest film composers of all time by any objective standard; his 49 Academy Award nominations are second only to Walt Disney himself. Williams and Walt Disney Concert Hall have gone together since the beginning. He opened the third inaugural gala, Soundstage L.A., in 2003 with the world premiere of his Soundings, a piece that has also provided the carillon lobby chimes that announce the end of intermission.
Come for: The symphonic power coupling of master violinist Itzhak Perlman and John Williams. Their work together has garnered both Oscars and Grammys for works like Schindler’s List.
And more: Since that epic three-night blow-out in 2003, the annual Opening Night concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall have become famous for their creative edge.
