The impact of the Star Wars films isn’t just on the film industry. From the epic visual effects to the inspiring musical score, Star Wars is one of those cultural phenomenons that you just know will remain popular.

You can get immersed in that galaxy far, far away for yourself in May when the music of John Williams will be on full display at Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back In Concert.
