Dear friends of the Rebel Legion, Freedom Base:

The 501st has been invited to participate in the National Symphony Orchestra's July 25th concert at Wolf Trap: "The Music of John Williams" featuring renowned conductor Erich Kunzel.

Here are the full details as of 7/17/2009 ( updated at 4:30PM)

WHAT: National Symphony Orchestra Concert honoring “The Music of John Williams”
WHEN: July 25, 2009 (Arrive no later than 6:00PM)
WHERE: Wolftrap in Virginia (Filene Center)

http://www.wolftrap.org/Home/Find_Performances_and_Events/Performance/09Filene/0725show09.aspx

NSO Concert: The Music of John Williams
Saturday, July 25 at 8:15 pm at the Filene Center
Maestro Erich Kunzel, conductor
NSO @ Wolf Trap


WHAT WE WILL BE DOING, Until we hear otherwise, be prepared to do exactly the same things we did in the 2007 Kennedy Center show including:
a. Meet and greet (pose for pics) before the show
b. Selected characters will participate on stage in one or more ‘skits’ during specific musical pieces
c. Curtain call finale’ (during the “Cantina Theme” piece) most of us will be on stage for the finale number “dancing” in costume (and then taking a bow)
d. Pose for pictures with patrons as they leave the Filene Center after the concert
e. FOTL / GTHM AWARDS: (At some point in the day TBD): OG, GT and OLG will present Maestro Erich Kunzel with the Friend of the Legion Award, Honorary GT Membership plaques, etc. for his contributions to the Star Wars Legacy and his courage in the face of his present battle.


CONFIRMED TROOPERS: We have over -36- troops attending, from GT, OLG, RL, OG and R2D2 Builders. (see list below)


THE CONCERT WILL GO ON regardless. Despite possible health issues with the conductor, this concert will go on. (even if Maestro Kunzel cannot for some reason, make it himself, NSO Conductor Emil de Cou is on standby, and would fill in if needed. So this troop is definitely happening.

FULL DETAILS PROVIDED THE DAY OF: regarding exactly what we will be doing -during the concert- These details will not likely be known until the day of the event due to issues communicating with the conductor. They will most likely be decided during the rehearsal earlier that day. *** PREPARE TO BE FLEXIBLE and ready to accommodate any changes.***

**NOT EVERYONE WILL BE ON STAGE**: **IMPORTANT NOTE: It is imperative that everyone be aware that NOT EVERYONE WILL BE ON STAGE. Who will be onstage, when, and doing what, will be determined by the conductor, likely on the day of the concert itself. If we get any say at all in this, priority will be given to those who did not troop onstage at the 2007 Kennedy Center events.

PLEASE NOTE... NO E.U. COSTUMES WILL BE ON STAGE as per directives from Erich Kunzel. Movie Costumes only. You can still troop every other aspect of this event, so please do come!

*REHEARSAL*: For Garrison/Legion officers, group leaders, droid handlers, and those with movie costumes who can attend, the NSO has asked that we attend the rehearsal if possible. It is being held at 11:00 AM that morning (7/25/09) at Wolf Trap. Please RSVP via PM to Jim Miller (DarthMiller) if you plan to attend the rehearsal.

ARRIVAL TIME:
a. 5:15 for garrison/legion officers, etc (501st, RL, R2D2 Builders, officers and coordinators) to set up, make decisions get/give directions and get in costume
b. NO LATER THAN 6:00 PM for everyone else. Since the gates open at 6:45 (and people line up WAY ahead of this to get good lawn seats), and we want to have troops greeting patrons as they arrive and enter the Filene Center area, we should have folks arrive early. (plus they are more likely to get a better parking spot if they come early)

PARKING: Parking is free at Wolf Trap. Each group will have ONE staff parking pass for the staff lot for loading and unloading of bulky gear crates, droids, etc. That means 1 staff parking pass for GT, 1 for OLG, 1 for RL and 1 for the R2D2 Builders group.

DRESSING ROOMS / WATER / GATORADE: They have 2 LARGE dressing rooms reserved for us, and are ready to accommodate our 40+ people. Water and Gatorade will be provided, and we can store our crates, etc. in those dressing rooms during the concert.

WEAPONS PROPS: No ruling yet… This is TBA. I have been asked to forward a list of possible props with photos to the NSO folks and they will forward it to Wolf Trap for approval. Lightsabers will likely be allowed, but we need to be prepared to leave the blasters at home if we are directed to do so.

DIRECTIONS / PROGRAM and MAP: We will receive a program list (sequence of musical numbers so we know when we may be on stage), and a map that includes locations of staff parking, the backstage entrance, etc. next week. This information will be posted on this forum once we have it.

SQUIRES STILL NEEDED! We need several more –experienced- squires to help keep an eye on our costumers. Squires need to be aware that they will be working throughout most of the show, and they may not get to see the show at all. To Squire or suggest a squire, please Contact DarthMiller (Jim) via PM.

CAMERAS NEEDED!! We very much need folks to bring good cameras to take photos of everything, especially the presentation of awards to Maestro Erich Kunzel.

Thanks Rick.

We would love to have RL folks there!

We especially could use the following characters:

Obi Wan (ROTS, or AOTC),
Anakin (ROTS)
Princess Leia (ANH)

Also, if anyone is already -experienced- at dueling,
please contact me if you would like to participate in this event in that capacity.

Thanks!

I have done a couple of these events in the past....they are ALLOT of fun to do and the musical performances are outstanding. The crowds LOVE our participation especially during the performance. If you can support, PLEASE let Jim know ASAP. I am going to try to do everything I can to be there.

V/R,

I was going to say I could come as TCW Anakin, but I don't think it would look right.

Thanks!

Seriously, though, please join us.

TCW Anakin is fine.
(we may not be able to use you during the Battle of the Heroes piece, but I definitely think that we should have Anakin there if at all possible, whatever the form.)

What do you think?

Kellie,

I think I noticed that you posted on the OLG forums as well... which costume will you be going in? Do you have a Princess Leia costume by any chance?

Thanks!

I wouldn't think of scaring anyone by dressing as Leia. I currently have a Jawa, working on RFT which can be worn if needed, or I can do TIE. I'd prefer to do the Jawa since we're dancing the cantina song.

Yeah, being on stage is what I was refering to as it not really looking good. I should be able to attend. Part of the costume is at my seamstress, if I can get it back I'll most def be there.
