NASHVILLE - If you've ever wanted to hear a top-notch group of classically-trained musicians channel Mos Eisley's Cantina Band, you'll have your chance next summer.
The Nashville Symphony is presenting the first "Star Wars" film, 1977's "A New Hope," at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center July 5-7, 2018. The film will be shown on a 70-foot HD screen while the orchestra performs John Williams' Oscar-winning score live.
The "A New Hope" screenings are the beginning of a four-year series in which the Nashville Symphony plans to present one "Star Wars" film a year. “The Empire Strikes Back” will be performed in 2019, “Return of the Jedi” in 2020 and “The Force Awakens” in 2021.
Tickets for "A New Hope" are currently on sale to symphony subscribers and will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday at NashvilleSymphony.org and at the Schermerhorn box office.
