Another Tribute to John Williams as the new Star Wars movie approaches.

Here is a really cool tribute to the composer John Williams (a Pine Glen favorite) in anticipation of the new Star Wars movie. It’s an a cappella (no accompaniment) performance at the American Music Awards by Pentatonix that is then joined by an orchestra. Pretty cool and fun! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!

In groups they created a variation to perform. In the end we created one large Theme and Variations piece by stringing them all together. Here are some of the results:
