Jaws in Concert
New Jersey Symphony at the Movies
Nicholas Hersh conductor
New Jersey Symphony
The original summer movie blockbuster, with an Academy Award®-winning score by composer John Williams, Jaws is an unforgettable film-with-live-orchestra experience!
Directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg, Jaws set the standard for edge-of-your-seat suspense, quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon and forever changing the movie industry. When the seaside community of Amity finds itself under attack by a dangerous great white shark, the town’s chief of police, a young marine biologist and a grizzled shark hunter embark on a desperate quest to destroy the beast before it strikes again. Featuring an unforgettable score that evokes pure terror, Jaws remains one of the most influential and gripping adventures in motion picture history.
Now for the first time, audiences will have the chance to experience the power of New Jersey Symphony performing the entire score in sync with one of the greatest motion pictures of all time.
In the words of Chief Brody, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat!”
