Duo performs Star Wars theme outside the home of John Williams

One of the most iconic, well-known melodies in film history is the main theme to Star Wars, composed by John Williams.

Early last week, two musicians — trumpeter Bryce Hayashi and flugel player Michael Miller — made the spontaneous and brave decision to have a public performance of an arrangement of that theme ... in front of the home of the famous film composer.

Williams was so impressed that he actually popped out of his house to greet them.

Hear the performance in the video below.
