Do you love the music of Star Wars as much as I do? To the point where it plays almost non-stop on your commute to work, or at home, or at work…to the point where your two-year old son and five-year old daughter both hear it so often that they can identify specific themes at so early an age? But I digress. The music of Star Wars is as much a part of the experience as lightsabers, X-wings and cinnamon bun hairdos. What John Williams has provided to Star Wars fans is nothing short of fundamental to Star Wars. Try to envision Darth Vader without the Imperial March? The Ewoks without their Parade? It just doesn’t compute!
We’re super excited to announce that we’re now running a contest to grab a pair of tickets to see the OVMF perform the music of The Force Awakens LIVE! For those living in and around Montreal, The OVMF (Orchestre à Vents de Musique de Films) is performing the music from The Force Awakens LIVE on June 12, 16, and 19 this coming June. The event is nearly sold out across the board (the June 12 and 19th shows are sold out, and the June 16th event soon will be), but we’ve got a pair of tickets to the June 19th show to give away to a lucky listener of the TumblingSaber podcast! To enter for your chance to win, check out the TumblingSaber podcast on iTunes, and leave us a 5-star review. Then, send the text of that review to firstname.lastname@example.org. Simple as that! We will pull a winner at random on the May 30th episode of the show, just be sure that you can get to Montreal if you enter!
We’re also doubly excited to announce that we’ve got Jocelyn Leblanc, Conductor of the OVMF on the next episode of the TumblingSaber podcast! We’re going to get deep on the music of Star Wars, so be sure not to miss this episode!
The OVMF puts on an excellent show, and you do not want to miss the chance to see this music performed live and in person! Here’s one example of how awesome this show will be:
