Singapore, 5 January 2016 – Singapore will be in for a spectacular and memorable experience with a new classical concert direct from the UK and based on the iconic film scores of John Williams, called Star Wars and Beyond, The Iconic Film Scores of John Williams. This musical voyage through a galaxy of well known film scores also includes electrifying multi-coloured light and laser displays, a pyrotechnic finale and opens at the MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands in March 2016 for 3 shows only. Tickets are now on sale.

Nothing can compare to the iconic film scores of John Williams. An American composer, conductor, and pianist with a career spanning over six decades, John Williams has composed some of the most popular and recognizable film scores in cinematic history.  From the first sinister bass notes of Jaws to the grandeur of Jurassic Park, from the emotion of E.T. to the mystery of Harry Potter, from the sublime Schindler’s List to the sensational Superman, these magnificent music masterpieces remain as popular today as when first released. Crowning it all is Star Wars, as one of the most epic scores of all time.

Base Entertainment presents all this memorable music and more in these fabulous concerts of John William’s highlights. Staged in association with Raymond Gubbay Ltd each piece will be further brought to life by a magnificent light and laser display stunningly programmed to perfectly complement each musical score. This spectacular lighting display is designed by Durham Marenghi who has recently been appointed as the lighting designer for the Rio 2016 Olympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies. The concert will be introduced and conducted by the irrepressible showman Anthony Inglis, taking charge of the full 80 piece Singapore Metropolitan Festival Orchestra.
