The Milwaukee Festival Brass will conclude its 38th Season in epic fashion with an all-Star Wars themed concert titled ”May the Fourth Be With You.” The program will be filled with the iconic music of John Williams and other composers who have lent their craft to the Star Wars saga.

“The music of Star Wars is one of the most widely shared cultural experiences we have in our society today,” said Music Director Mark A. Taylor. “No matter which generation you are a member of, or when you were introduced to the Star Wars series, this is music that is instantly recognizable. The sounds transport you back in time to the moment you first experienced each film or program.” The concert will feature music from each of the Star Wars trilogies, as well as music from the more recent streaming programs within the Star Wars canon. Listeners may even be treated to a surprising mash-up of a very familiar Star Wars melody and an iconic big band tune.
