"Kind of dismissive to identify John Williams as “the Star Wars composer” and just let it go at that — but the bravura maestro remains best known for that picture’s stirring orchestral themes of 1977 et seq., despite a film- and television-scoring career that dates from the 1950s into the present day. The resume becomes all the more extensive if one counts the assignments performed under an early alias, Johnny Williams.
A favorite popular attraction in Fort Worth, the Hollywood-based Williams has long since sold out an April 20 concert with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. So the orchestra has come up with a mass-appeal alternative that may prove even more enlightening than the formal concert: Williams’ rehearsal that same day with the Fort Worth Symphony has been opened up to paid admission, with tickets ranging from $15 to $40. (Rehearsal time: 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. April 20, Bass Hall; reservations at www.fwsymphony.org or 817-665-6000.)"

They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
