A night at the orchestra, even if it isn't under the stars
I'm headed to the Philharmonic this evening with Alyssa and 100 of our closest friends (a whole big group of Northwestern people). It should be an exciting evening as John Williams will be conducting and there will be a variety of fun pieces from a number of his best known compositions, as well as some less known pieces. I missed out on the opportunity to see him last year (although I have seen him conduct a concert in Central Park a number of years ago).

And if you are interested, below is the set list.

Williams: Sound the Bells!
Williams: "Flight to Neverland" from Hook
Williams: Suite from Jane Eyre
Williams: Three Pieces from Harry Potter
Hedwig's Theme
Aunt Marge's Waltz
Harry's Wondrous World
Bock/arr. Williams: Excerpts from Fiddler on the Roof
Whiting/arr. Williams: "Hooray for Hollywood"
A Tribute to Stanley Donen
Lane: "You're All the World to Me" from Royal Wedding
DePaul: "Bless Your Beautiful Hide" from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Previn: "I Like Myself" from It's Always Fair Weather
Fain: "The Worry Song" from Anchors Aweigh
Brown: "Singin' in the Rain"
Williams: Sayuri's Theme from Memoirs of a Geisha
Williams: A Tribute to George Lucas and Steven Spielberg
