What do these films have in common?
Saving Private Ryan
The Alma Public Library owns them, they were directed by Steven Spielberg, and the music for these movies, and many, many more was written by composer John Williams!
With 49 Academy Award nominations, “Williams holds the record for the most Oscar nominations of any living person.” “Note by note, through chord and chorus, his genius for marrying music with movies has elavated the art form to symphonic levels and inspired generations of audiences to be enriched by the magic of movies.” (Sir Howard Stringer, Chair, American Film Institute Board of Trustees)
The American Film Institute will be presenting Williams with its 44th Life Achievement Award on June 9, 2016.
