Star Wars In Concert Giveaway

Star Wars in Concert in Portland
Star Wars in Concert in Portland

It’s unnecessary to exalt the virtues of Star Wars, it exists as one of the most influential series of films of the 20th century (well at least the original trilogy). One of the things which helps make the Star Wars franchise so amazing is John Williams’ legendary score.

Almost anyone who hears just a few notes of any of John Williams’ music from the series should be able to easily identify it as Star Wars.

Now,  the music from all six films have been combined with a multimedia spectacular into a live show that will surely thrill even the most casual Star Wars Fan (if there is such thing as a casual Star Wars Fan).

Star Wars In Concert arrives at the Rose Garden on Wednesday October 14th and On Portland is giving away 4 pairs of tickets to this once in a lifetime event. This two-hour musical event that features scenes from the movies projected on massive high-def screens, a full symphonic orchestra with choir, and live narration by Anthony Daniels, who played C-3PO.

In addition, audiences will be able to view an exhibition of STAR WARS original memorabilia, props, costumes and artwork from all six films from the Lucasfilm Archives.

Enter for your chance to win one of 4 pairs of tickets we’re giving away. Enterting is simple, just post your favorite Star Wars line, quote, memory or ancedote in the comments and you’re entered. Winners will be picked at the end of the day on Monday October 12th.
