Music and pictures from a galaxy far, far away

Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra is going to perform music from some of the greatest motion pictures ever. They have not mentioned the name of the movies due to copy right issues.

At the QNCC, they will showcase clips and stills and guided narration to meet “Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, the crew of the USS Enterprise with Dr. Spock and Captain Kirk, and Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley in terror from alien creatures,” QPO said in a cryptic message.

It sounds like a very interesting evening for film and music enthusiasts.
