“It has been several years since the renowned San Diego Symphony has appeared at the Moonlight, and we are so pleased to have the orchestra back performing music by the greatest soundtrack wizard of our time, John Williams,” said Moonlight Managing Director Colleen Kollar Smith. “The San Diego Symphony has a long history of performing the music of John Williams and we can’t wait to open our concert series with the full orchestra playing this brilliant music.”

Martha Gilmer, the San Diego Symphony’s CEO, said, “The music of John Williams is a particular specialty of the San Diego Symphony. We are so honored to have been selected over the years to perform John Williams’ music both as part of Comic Con and conducted by Mr. Williams himself. It is our great pleasure to present the full orchestra in Vista as part of the Moonlight Amphitheatre’s presenting series, and we hope to return time and again.”
