Picture Perfect: Feb. 19 - John Williams Does the Presidents

In a career that’s spanned over 60 years, John Williams has had opportunities to score just about every kind of film. Inevitably, these would include several fictionalized accounts of American presidents. For Presidents Day, enjoy selections from Williams’ music for “JFK,” “Nixon,” “Lincoln,” and “Amistad” (the latter featuring Anthony Hopkins as John Quincy Adams and Nigel Hawthorne as Martin Van Buren). The presidents take precedence, this Saturday at 6 pm.
