Christo Rey students see the Star Wars Symphony in San Jose

June 20, 2022

What’s better than seeing Star Wars while the full force of Symphony Silicon Valley blasts the classic John Williams score live? Seeing the reactions of young people as they experience it for the first time.

LivenUp recently treated a group of students and staff from San Jose’s Cristo Rey High School to this larger-than-life performance of Star Wars – A New Hope – and an opportunity to meet some musicians after the show. As always, our hope is that exposing kids to live performing arts will educate, inspire and maybe even change a life or two.
