Autographed Star Wars Film Score

Award winning composer, John Williams, has graciously donated an autographed copy of the Main Title from the film score “Star Wars” to be auctioned in support of his scholarship fund through the Kansas City Vocal Institute.

This film score is regarded as one of the most important and influential film scores in history. The page is an excerpt of the first four measures of the title theme from the Star Wars suite for orchestra from the first Star Wars film, “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope”. This specific excerpt, “Main Title”, was awarded a Grammy Award in 1977 for Best Instrument Composition. The entire film score won four Grammy Awards and both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Original Score in 1977. John Williams has won five Academy Awards, four Golden Globe Awards, and 21 Grammy Awards.
