At least one of these names should be familiar to you—or perhaps you know the man by his music. Prolific composer John Williams wrote the now-iconic scores for Stars Wars, Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and E.T. The Extraterrestrial, to name just a few, and served as conductor to the Boston Pops Orchestra for more than 10 years. Which brings us to the other element of this concert. Arthur Fielder was the late, great conductor responsible for the impressive legacy of the Boston Pops. When he arrived behind the podium in 1930, he took the symphony’s already established tradition even further in the direction of “popular” music, adding show tunes, Sousa, Gershwin, and the like. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to Williams’ and Fielder’s tremendous contributions with an equally tremendous concert that’ll delight all ages.
