“Across the Stars” at The Beacon Theatre

John Williams is considered one of the greatest modern composers, and almost certainly the greatest movie soundtrack composer of his time. 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:
