The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, joined by violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, will perform the music of John Williams at a broadcast of “Across the Stars” at The Beacon Theatre at 2 p.m. on Nov. 30, as part of the Fun, Frost and Family Festival. Hear the music of Star Wars, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Schindler’s List and more! Tickets for such events are normally $20 a person but … The Beacon Theatre is paying half the ticket cost on your behalf as a celebration for the beginning of its 70th anniversary. So tickets are only $10 each. To find out more about “Across The Stars”, click on this link:
