John Williams Returning to Los Angeles This Week

As first posted on our ForumsFacebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds (and subsequently reported by everyone else), John Williams is expected to return to Los Angeles this week after recovering from a “routine illness” that prevented him to conduct the London Symphony on October 26 at the Royal Albert Hall.

Here’s what record producer and friend Mike Matessino commented regarding Williams’ health:

October 24:

“I can tell you that this is a routine illness and that he will be fine. They will simply get him well in a London hospital and then send him home to L.A. as soon as he can travel.”

October 27:

“Latest report is that the Maestro is doing just fine and may go back to LA on Monday.”

Williams is expected to resume work on the score for Star Wars: Episode IX, which will be recorded next year for a December release.
