DETROIT — Director Steven Spielberg and composer John Williams will join the Detroit Symphony Orchestra for a special benefit concert on June 14.

Williams will conduct the DSO as it performs selections from some of his most popular scores, including “Star Wars,” ‘’Harry Potter,” ‘’Jaws,” ‘’E.T.,” ‘’Indiana Jones,” ‘’Schindler’s List” and more.

Spielberg will join Williams to host the second half of the evening. He’ll present selections from his decades-long artistic collaboration with Williams, including selected film clips projected on an oversized screen above the orchestra.
