We're bursting excitement here at KidTown Melbourne HQ after this morning's announcement by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) will present the exclusive Australian premiere of Star Wars: The Concert Series with The Force Awakens on 8, 9 and 10 December 2017 at St Kilda’s newly refurbished Palais Theatre.

Featuring a full screening of the film with Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ classic score performed live to picture, led by conductor Nicholas Buc.

Thursday to Saturday performances will also feature a pre-conert talk "The Art of The Score" with conductor Nicholas Buc, MSO Senior Manager of Special Projects Andrew Pogson, and film academic Dr. Dan Golding.

This informative talk will cover an in-depth dive into the main themes and a look into how these themes are developed throughout the film along with discovering the secret to how the MSO syncs to the film itself.
