John Williams (born February 8, 1932) has enjoyed a career that has spanned seven decades. He has composed some of the most popular, recognizable, and critically acclaimed film scores in cinematic history. Williams has won 25 Grammy Awards, seven British Academy Film Awards, five Academy Awards, and four Golden Globe Awards. With 52 Academy Award nominations, he is the second most-nominated individual, after Walt Disney. His compositions are considered the epitome of film music. On June 12th, the Tri-County Symphonic Band will pay tribute to the iconic composer with a concert entitled “John Williams at the Movies.” The program will include selections from “The Cowboys”, “Superman”, “E. T.”, “Harry Potter” and “Jurassic Park.” As a special treat, marimba soloist Dan Monte will display his technical wizardry with performance of a special arrangement of the fiery “Csárdás” by Vittorio Monti. The concert will be held on Sunday, June 12, 2022 at 2:00 pm. There will be a Social Hour with food and drink, provided by On The Go Caterers, at 1:00 pm. The concert will take place in The Grand Tent on the waterfront adjacent to the Fireman Performing Arts Center at Hoyt Hall on the campus of Tabor Academy, 245 Front Street, Marion. Tickets are $35 in advance and can be purchased online at www.BrownPaperTickets.com and at The Symphony Music Shop in Dartmouth.
