For the first time in forever, the American Film Institute is honoring a composer for a Life Achievement Award.

John Williams has graced us with his incredible talent composing music for so many of our favorites – Star Wars, Jaws, E.T. and the Indiana Jones Films to name a few.   Mr. Williams will be the first composer in 44 years to recieve the American Film Institute’s highest honor:  The Life Achievement Award.

“John Williams has written the soundtrack to our lives,” says Howard Stringer, chairman of the institute’s board of trustees, in a statement. “Note by note, through chord and chorus, his genius for marrying music with movies has elevated the art form to symphonic levels and inspired generations of audiences to be enriched by the magic of the movies.”

The award which is usually awarded to actors and directors will be presented to John Williams on June 9, 2016.  The award will find a place in Mr. Williams collection along with his five Oscars.

Do you recognize any of these songs? would like to congratulate Mr. Williams and thank him for all the beautiful music he has brought into our lives.
