The Atlanta Symphony’s “Movies in Concert” series continues this weekend with the full orchestra playing John Williams score in sync with “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” on a 40 foot screen.

ASO trombonist, Brian Hecht joins us to discuss this upcoming weekend’s performance.

“John Williams had a lot of great composers in his head and great composers who influenced his music. He definitely plays off the great composers who came before him,” he said.

You can see the performance Friday and Saturday evening at the Symphony Hall starting at 7:30 p.m.
