Image3Jacksonville Symphony Orchester – John Williams Spectacular – Star Wars

So for my tenth troop I suited up in armor to join my brother and sisters for the Jacksonville Symphony Orchester (JSO) for a night of John Williams music which includes sound tracks from movies like  “JawsE.T.: The Extra-TerrestrialSchindler’s List, as well as the Indiana Jones series, have won him multiple awards and produced best-selling recordings, and his scores for the original Star Wars trilogy transformed the landscape of Hollywood film music and became icons of American culture.” – John Williams Website.

OK, so this was like the coolest thing to do. I mean its not often you can put on your armor and be standing on stage looking out over a sea of people watching you as the music of Star Wars blasts through to them. They sounded so good I almost forgot it was live. People had smiles beaming from their faces as they watched us do our thing and we all had a good time doing it.

Here are more pictures and some notes at the bottom.
