UMD Professor Hosts Musical Journey Through Star Wars

Sorry, this video is no longer available

What better day to take a musical journey through the Star Wars films than May the fourth?

Dr. Jefferson Campbell of UMD’s department of music gave a presentation through the films that make up the Star Wars saga at Zinema 2 in downtown Duluth Monday.

Through video and audio clips, Dr. Campbell demonstrated how composer John Williams uses music to help tell the story from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

“The reason it’s so special is that it now has spanned two full generations. I went to the very first movie with my dad when I was four, and now I’m teaching people who are teenagers who just started when the prequels came out,” said Dr. Campbell.

Star Wars VII comes out December 15.
