Movie at the Symphony: Jurassic Park In Concert

Brett Mitchell, conductor

One of the most thrilling science fiction adventures ever made, and featuring one of John Williams’ most iconic and beloved musical scores, Jurassic Park transformed the movie-going experience for an entire generation and became the highest-grossing film of all time in 1993, winning three Academy Awards®. Masterfully directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the best-selling novel by Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park transports us to a secluded island where scientists have succeeded in reviving the age of dinosaurs in a brand-new, immersive theme park, the likes of which has never been seen.

Experience this ground-breaking film as never before: with your Colorado Symphony performing Williams’ magnificent score.

Welcome… to Jurassic Park!
