Jake Endres returns to join William Schrickel and the MSO in Nathaniel Stookey’s entertaining musical whodunit, The Composer Is Dead, bringing to life writer Lemony Snicket’s charming murder mystery that cleverly introduces the audience to all the instruments of the orchestra while unearthing the identity of the person or persons who killed the (formerly) living composer. George Lucas’ Star Wars saga is more popular than ever, and the MSO concludes this special one-hour family concert with John Williams’ music from the final scene of the first Star Wars film, released 42 years ago.
