Dear Will,

Stumbled on this thread just then as I was just researching some more John Williams music. Just to keep you informed, the original Jurassic Park theme is one of my favourites from Maestro Williams and was actually my No.1 choice for a piece in the concert. Unfortunately however, at the time of the concert, the music for that piece was not published and so we weren't able to get the rights to perform it. I believe however that there may be another concert this year and hope to perform it then!

My best,
