In November 2010, the LSO played their first concert with Frank Strobel of this special celebration for the music of John Williams, from the movies of Steven Spielberg. It was a mere few days after the sad passing of their legendary trumpeter, Maurice Murphy. Needless to say, the rehearsal and final performance was emotionally charged and the concert was dedicated to their dear colleague. I travelled with the orchestra and filmed a video diary, here's a short clip. The full 35 minute audio and video feature is published at http://www.FSMOnlinemag.com
