Recommended Posts




Legendary movie composer John Williams is currently in the hospital in London, pulling out of a concert with the London Symphony Orchestra set to take place this Friday.


A statement from the Royal Albert Hall, where the concert was taking place, notes that Williams is suffering from a last-minute illness. It also indicates that he's receiving care for the sickness at the hospital.

Williams' management also issued a statement on the cancellation, indicating that he is on the road to recovery:


"John is so sorry that an illness prevents him from conducting Friday's concert, and he's grateful to his friend Maestro Dirk Brass for taking the podium in his place. He so wishes he could be with everyone, and the knowledge that 5,000 of his friends will be joining together to celebrate his music is a great comfort to him as he recovers. He wishes everyone a very joyous evening of music."
