Never miss another 'City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO)' show
Friday Night Classics: Star Wars: City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), CBSO Chorus, Michael Seal
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… John Williams lifted his baton and cued one of the greatest scores in movie history. As the world awaits the launch of The Last Jedi, conductor Michael Seal and the CBSO perform John Williams’s music for the first seven films in the saga. Relive the story so far, from The Phantom Menace to The Force Awakens – in thrilling full orchestral sound.
CBSO+ 6.15pm: Join film music specialist Tommy Pearson to hear more about tonight's programme and the man behind these iconic scores.
Founded in 1920, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has always had an illustrious career. In fact, the first concert was conducted by Sir Edward Elgar. The orchestra has grown into a 90-piece ensemble with a worldwide reputation.

The CBSO Chorus is one of the world’s great choirs – 180 people from all walks of life who come together to sing symphonic choral music. Trained for over 30 years by Simon Halsey CBE, its main role is to perform with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra on tour and at its home, Birmingham’s Symphony Hall. But it’s also an ensemble with a global reputation in its own right, a hard-working team of “amateur professionals” who give up their own time to perform the most challenging works in the choral repertoire to the highest international standard.
