Experience John Williams' epic score played live by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

If you're a fan of Jurassic Park (and seriously, who isn't?) then no doubt you're hearing that song in your head right now. John Williams' score to Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster is one of the most recognisable of all time; and now, fans will have the chance to hear it played live by the MSO at Hamer Hall while the film is projected in HD. Just think about that moment when the team first lay eyes on a herd of brachiosaurus; how much more epic will that be watching it on a big screen, with music by a live orchestra?

MSO's associate conducter Benjamin Northey will lead the orchestra. "The score to Jurassic Park is classic Williams – visceral, moving and perfectly captures the wonder and foreboding of the film," says Northey. "It is without question one of his very finest scores, and in my opinion one of the best film scores of all time." 

Williams has written many of film's most recognisable scores, among them Jaws, the Star Wars series and the first three Harry Potter films.
