The final concert of the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra’s 2017/2018 season will be held May 19 at 7:30 pm at the TVA Credit Union Ball Park in Johnson City. The music for the season finale will be filled with excitement, whimsy, drama, and terror as it will be from the many blockbuster movie scores of John Williams, one of Hollywood’s most famous composers for the last six decades. Music from E.T., Harry Potter, Superman, Star Wars, Schindler’s List, Catch Me If You Can, and Jaws will keep the night lively. Also on hand will be Cosplay characters for your entertainment, and a costume contest for kids dressed as their favorite characters from a John Williams movie. This concert is being sponsored by The Honorable Lynn Brown, William & Judy Tindall, Donna & Bob Jacobson, Brenda Phillips, Heather Gilreath, Col. & Mrs. Robert Tregaskis, Karen & Will Manley, Susan Street, Mickey Jilton, and Fidelity Investments. WHJL is the media sponsor. Tickets are $10 for students, $35 for adults and $50 for a family of four with two children 12 and under.
