FEEL THE THE FORCE !!!

This past weekend I attended the last of a four part
"Pops Concert Series"
presented by the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra,
conducted by Stewart Malina.
It was made up of themes from the Star Wars, Alien
and Space Odyssey movies.



The local 501st Legion were there in their HANDMADE costumes.
Truly amazing.
Above you see Darth Vader with a Storm Trooper in the background.
Jawa  was seen sneaking through the audience.





Chewbacca was my favorite..
He was probably at least eight feet tall.




Don't you just love that face ?? So sweet...




You can see C3PO next to the Cellist.



The Legion does a lot of benefits involving kids.
The music was wonderful.
It included a lot of movie themes form the above mentioned movies
and
                        ET, Cocoon, Avatar and Back To The Future.
Scores by the likes of Strauss, Horner, Goldsmith and of course
John Williams.
