The force is strong within Maestro Denis Mastromonaco and the ninety person Mississauga Symphony Orchestra. This was apparent in 2016 when the MSO first performed the music of the iconic space opera to a sold out theatre. A keen eye would have spotted members of the orchestra dressed as Storm Troopers, Padawan and galactic princesses, as well as the Maestro making an appearance as a Jedi before shedding his robes and light sabre in the second half of the concert to reveal his inner bootlegging space scoundrel. No Jedi mind tricks were needed to draw another large audience this year.
Tickets for the concert are selling extremely quickly. Fans of the film series are advised to purchase tickets in advance to avoid disappointment at the box office on concert night.
No tribute to Star Wars would be complete without the characters that have captured imaginations for decades. Cosplay enthusiasts are encouraged to arrive dressed as their favourite character from the Star Wars galaxy for a chance to win a rare photo opportunity on stage, in costume, with the MSO, as well as a number of Star Wars themed prizes.
Tickets can be purchased by calling the Living Arts Centre box office at: 905-306-6000, or by visiting: mississaugasymphony.ca. Complimentary underground parking is included with every ticket purchase.
The concert will begin at 8pm.
