    City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

    Me and Sarah went the Symphony Hall in Birmingham on Friday to see the CBSO perform some of the film scores that the legendary John Williams wrote. He is the bloke that is responsable for the following and more:

    Star Wars
    The Sea Hawk
    The Philadelphia Story
    Jaws
    Taxi Driver
    E.T.
    Airport
    Ben Hur
    Catch Me If You Can
    Schindler’s List
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind
    Superman


    That is what they played and in that order, I thought they may have peaked too early with Star Wars (massive fan!) but the rest were awesome with Jaws and Superman being brilliant!

    Not sure if they are doing a tour but if they are its well worth going

    Sounds like a great night out tbh, I'm a big fan of live music from lots of different genres including classical. Live jazz (with vocals) has got to be best though imo. Nothing better than seeing and hearing music in the flesh rather than through a set of speakers

    Do you know if they will be touring in London? Will prob book a pair of tickets if so...
