Pacific Symphony John Williams Concert, OC Performing Arts Center

Our family attended the final concert with Richard Kaufman & the Pacific Symphony orchestra. What a wonderful show! Photos from the films were projected onscreen as they played classic music from films such as Superman, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Harry Potter, Jaws, Memoirs of a Geisha (featuring dancers onstage), and Star Wars. In addition to delivering the Star Wars score to Master Kaufman during the first act, R2-D2 returned to the stage at the end of the show to deliver the conductor's announcements for the 2010-2011 pops concert season. After the show, R2-D2 entertained VIPs at a private reception. Our daughter, who plays flute in school, was thrilled to meet & talk shop with the symphony's flute player.

Stage right where R2 enters the stage. I had to speed him through that small door. It's got about an inch clearance on either side.

R2 gets wired for sound.
