Here’s one way to get into the “Star Wars” spirit ahead of the new movie’s December opening: go to a “Star Wars” concert.

Emory University’s Symphony Orchestra will perform “Star Wars: Suite for Orchestra” by composer John Williams on Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. at the Schwartz Center on the university campus.

The event is free and open to the public. Here’s the evening’s program, according to the Emory Symphony website:

Sibelius: Finlandia
Williams: Star Wars: Suite for Orchestra
I. Main Title
II. Princess Leia’s Theme
III. The Imperial March (Darth Vader’s Theme)
IV. Yoda’s Theme
V. Throne Room and End Title

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” rolls into theaters on Friday, December 18. After the trailer and poster came out, many have been speculating about what happens to Luke Skywalker, who appears to be missing from both.
