I have verified that I will DEFINITELY be able to make this event. So count me in for any skits etc. you need me for. I would prefer to wear Jedi since I have not worn it for an event since I got my RFT....but am willing to do whatever is needed.

Rick and Neil,

PLEASE STAND BY:
New information on its way.

I just got 3 emails from the NSO, and am trying to process and disseminate the information as fast as I can... while juggeling all 3 major projects I am working of at work... plus I have a root canal scheduled for 3 today!

Highlights in the next post.

You are welcome as duelists, but will need to lobby to do something during the show... please come to rehearsal at 11 am, and go in the backstage entrance... email me at jimmillersemail@gmail.com and I will send you the map they sent me.. (rough quality... sorry)

Highlights in the next post.

- Jim



New information highlights:

Weapon props: OK!!! (by both Wolf Trap and the US park Police)

We will -ONLY- be on stage for the encore "Cantina Band" piece finale' at the end.
(although I will personally lobby at rehearsal to have some of us walk across the stage during a few of the star wars pieces, like Imperial March and duel of the fates, etc.)

-All- of the Star Wars music will occur as a 48 minute "composition" piece, in the second half of the show, towards the end.
(so by deductive reasoning, it'll all be after intermission)

Rehearsal starts at 11am (no idea how long it will take, but now that we know when and where we will be, folks who are coming a great distance don't have to worry about that any more!)

The entire show ends at between 10pm and 10:15pm. Remember that we will be interacting with the departing crowds after that also.

We will enter through the backstage door, I will provide a map (from them, not the best quality though) to anyone who emails me at jimmillersemail@gmail.com

No to Indiana Jones (whomever asked about it... I have had so many calls and emails, I can't remember who it was)... sorry.

I will update the first post with final details shortly.
Best bet is to call me at 703-966-7609 if you have any pressing questions in the meantime!

Thanks for being so patient!
I just got a TON of information, and I am knee deep in work projects today to boot...
I'll do my best.

- Jim

Hi everyone.

Here is the most up to date (and final) information on this troop.
Please print this out for your use the day of!!!!
Please contact me with any last minute questions 703-966-7609.

....................................................................................................

WHAT: National Symphony Orchestra Concert honoring “The Music of John Williams”
WHEN: July 25, 2009 (Arrive no later than 6:00PM)
TIME: Concert runs from 8:15 until 10:15PM
WHERE: Wolftrap in Virginia (Filene Center)
WHO: Maestro Erich Kunzel and the NSO

http://www.wolftrap.org/Home/Find_Perfo ... how09.aspx

NSO Concert: The Music of John Williams
Saturday, July 25 at 8:15 pm at the Filene Center
Maestro Erich Kunzel, conductor (confirmed!!!)
National Symphony Orchestra


WHAT WE WILL BE DOING, (UPDATED!)
a. Meet and greet (pose for pics) before the show
b. Selected MOVIE characters will participate on stage in the last “encore” finale’ at the conclusion of the show (during the “Cantina Band” piece) likely “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 , LIKELY DURING INTERMISSION): 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.

ALL OF THE STAR WARS MUSIC will be after intermission, and performed in a 48 minute “Composition” format… and we will join in at the end with the Cantina Band theme.

CONFIRMED TROOPERS: We have exactly -34- troops attending, from GT, OLG, RL, OG and R2D2 Builders. (see list below)


MAESTRO ERICH KUNZEL is CONFIRMED attending!!!


*** 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.

NO E.U. COSTUMES WILL BE ON STAGE as per directives from Erich Kunzel. Movie Costumes only.

*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: (UPDATED!) Blasters and lihtsabers are permitted by Wolf Trap and the US Park Police. I personally spoke to US Park Police Officer McKinney last night who assured me that they were allowed, and Stephanie from the NSO said they were fine too! Just go easy around the little kids 

DIRECTIONS / PROGRAM and MAP: is attached to this post below. Or you can email me at jimmillersemail@gmail.com and I’ll send you one if I have time.

SQUIRES READ THIS!! Whomever wants to squire, please Contact DarthMiller (Jim) via pone or email by 8:00 AM tomorrow 7/25/09 so I can put your name on the list! Otherwise you won’t be able to get backstage with us!

CAMERAS. Please bring them. We very much need folks to bring good cameras to take photos the presentation of awards to Maestro Erich Kunzel.

Any time Rick, hopefully next time I won't have crash into the seats :-) overall I thought this was an awesome troop. Sorry to everyone for missing the dinner, but I needed ice and Advil.

Anyone who has any pics or video of our duel please post them, I would really like to see how it looked.

Hey! I know I'm short and you guys are like 8 ft tall. Crying or Very sad Must have been some other Jawa walking around in a Terrapin Base shirt.
Even though I wasn't there, you guys looked great. Laughing
