Although I won’t likely get an opportunity to see the Star Wars: The Force Awakens until next week, it is difficult not to get caught up in the excitement especially when friends and colleagues who work in the LA studio scene have been posting photos on Facebook from the recording sessions (so…many…selfies…with…JJ).
Am I jealous? Of course! But seeing the bits and pieces of the fun happening at the Sony Pictures Scoring Stage is a terrific reminder of just how much impact live classical music has outside of our respective concert halls. If fact, Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams said as much during the now legendary comic-con panel from July, 2015 where he ended up treating everyone in attendance to a live orchestra concert featuring music from Star Wars performed by the San Diego Symphony.
And just in case you missed it, you should set aside a few moments to watch the Jimmy Fallon, The Roots & “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Cast Sing “Star Wars” Medley (A Cappella) video. Good stuff.
