Folsom’s Harris Center roars back with a show dedicated to the works of composing legend John Williams

By Eddie Jorgensen

You don’t have to be a classic music afficionado to have heard the sounds of John Williams. His name is synonymous with iconic movie soundtracks, the credits being too numerous to mention. To date, there are more than 100 well-known scores that began in his imagination.

Two upcoming shows at Folsom’s Harris Center for the Arts will serve as a reminder of how influential Williams’ body of work is – and how well it has aged. Expect pieces from Hollywood favorites such as Superman, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic ParkE.T., Star Wars and more.

Concertmaster Anita Fetsch Felix will be the shows’ featured performer during Schindler’s List, as well as in John Williams’ arrangement of Jerry Bock’s Fiddler on the Roof, which includes Mr. Williams’ original violin cadenzas.

The John Williams Spectacular is a limited engagement and plays on two special days – Saturday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 4, at 2 p.m. Although tickets are already sold-out, there is always a chance a limited amount of tickets will be released at The Harris Center is located at 10 College Parkway in Folsom. All ages are welcome.
