The Score Awakens

Would Star Wars still be Star Wars without the music? The Score Awakens showcases the role John William's brilliant score has in creating the iconic Star Wars universe. ISO Principal Librarian and film music expert, James Norman, reveals how this score changed the role of music in film and shares insights even the most devoted fan will find illuminating.

Indy Lightsaber Academy (pictured below) will share a live demonstration of how the music inspires epic battles, and the evening will end with everyone getting in on the sci-fi swordplay!

This event will be held at the Hilbert Circle Theatre, located at 45 Monument Circle. 

All First Mondays Series events are free and open to the public, but reservations are required. 
Doors open at 6:30pm for snacks and mingling before the 7pm program. 


*The Score Awakens is proud to be an official event of the 2018 Spirit & Place Festival.
