Regardless of whether you side with the Empire or the Rebel Alliance, you're sure to find something that will literally be music to your ears.

I am a huge Star Wars fan. I consider the original trilogy to be some of the greatest films of all time considering when they were made and how well they stand the test of time. While I didn't think the second batch was so great, I am excited to see what J.J. Abrams does with the new trilogy in a few years.

But what would Star Wars be without the opening theme, or the ominous Imperial March? It wouldn't be much. Let's do an experiment, shall we? Watch the video below twice. Once with the volume on your speakers turned down, and once with them at whatever level is comfortable to you.

Notice the difference? With the sound, you know Darth Vader is one bad MoFo. A force (no pun intended) to be reckoned with. Without the sound; he's just a guy with questionable fashion taste. The point is, big, booming scores are crucial for a film. It helps sell the scene, or brand the product.

The Philharmonic will pay tribute not only to those glorious Star Wars songs, but songs from Batman (the good one's with Christian Bale as the caped crusader), Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, and more during their second annual Sci-Fi Night this weekend.

Performances will take place at 7pm Saturday night, and 2pm Sunday afternoon at the Victory Theater in downtown Evansville with tickets available online through the Philharmonic website, or by calling (812) 425-5050.
