Meet Star Wars Characters at Forest Hills Stadium This Thursday!

The New York Pops Plays
June 8, 2017 - 7:30 PM
Forest Hills Stadium, Queens, NY
On June 8, 2017The New York Pops will return to its summer home, Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY, for a program of music by legendary film composer John Williams. The orchestra will be joined by members of the 501st Legion: Empire City Garrison, a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization comprised of and operated by Star Wars fans, wearing costumes from the Star Wars films!
The orchestra’s Kids in the Balcony program, which has expanded greatly since its offshoot Kids in the Stadium was introduced in 2015 thanks in part to the generosity of concert presenters Madison House Presents, will offer more than 1,500 Queens children and their families an opportunity to attend and learn about live music for free.
This concert is generously supported by Morgan StanleyAT&TWigdor LLPandCredit Suisse, with additional support from the City of New York and the New York City Council.
“Playing at Forest Hills Stadium has really been a dream come true” said Music Director Steven Reineke. “Get ready for an evening of music that will transport you from a galaxy far, far away to a park full of dinosaurs, from Civil War-era Washington to shark-infested waters off the coast of New England. It’s going to be a blast!”
The New York Pops concerts at Forest Hills Stadium are family-friendly events. Food and beverage is available for purchase on the stadium grounds. Family ticket packages available.
Tickets on sale  at www.foresthillsstadium.com
