Get ready for a huge dose of nostalgia.
The New York Pops are coming to Forest Hills Stadium and will be putting on a show featuring the music of one film’s most legendary composers, John Williams.
Williams is known for composing the music for films such as “Jurassic Park,” “Indiana Jones,” “Star Wars” and more, and his famous film scores have stood the test of time. On Thursday, June 8, the New York Pops will be putting on a selection of some of the most popular music ever written for the silver screen.
“Playing at Forest Hills Stadium has really been a dream come true,” said music director Steven Reineke. “With our third season at the stadium this summer, we are really cementing our status as a ‘must do’ summer event in NYC – and I can’t tell you how much we love being there! Get ready for an evening of music that will transport you from a galaxy far, far away to a park full of dinosaurs, from Civil War-era Washington to shark-infested waters off the coast of New England. It’s going to be a blast!”
The concert will support the New York Pops’ “Kids in the Balcony” program, which will allow 1,500 Queens children and their families to attend the concert for free. The concert is supported in part by Morgan Stanley, AT&T and Wigdor LLP, with additional support from the City of New York and the New York City Council.
“There are few things more iconic and awe-inspiring than the New York Pops and the music of John Williams. AT&T is proud to support another exciting season at Forest Hills Stadium, and to help bring Williams’ incredible scores to life,” said Marissa Shorenstein, AT&T SVP for the East Region. “We are also thrilled to give back to the Queens community by once again offering free access to this one-of-a-kind experience right in their own borough.”
