Oak Lawn Band performed on Cedar Springs Road and will present a concert at SMU.

Oak Lawn Band will present “Escapades with John Williams,” featuring some of the most popular movie scores by the composer. Tickets for the May 18 concert at 4 p.m. At SMU’s Caruth Auditorium are available on Eventbrite.

Among Williams the scores that will be performed are music from Star Wars, Jaws, The Cowboys and more.

“This is a concert that has something for everyone” said Oak Lawn Band Artistic Director Marc Dunbar. “Not only do we have some of the best-known music from our favorite movies, but music that can stand on its own to excite us, move us and pique our imaginations.”

Featured soloists will be Dunbar on alto saxophone with music from Catch Me if You Can and Dr. Martin Godoy on flute for Schindler’s List.
