John Williams was in good company last Thursday as he joined the likes of Clint Eastwood, Bob Dylan and Elie Wiesel while receiving an award from President Obama for his musical work with Star Wars, the Olympics and more. While the Guardian source article focuses most on Eastwood and Dylan, you can still give it a read to get a feel for all of those being honored. In addition, an HD video of the event can be watched here. (The segment featuring John Williams is from 17:40 to 18:41.)
Thanks to Michael for the heads up and to TFN's Eric for the video link.
