This past weekend, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles was host to Star Wars: In Concert. The multimedia event, performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, features the orchestra and choir performing music from all six Star Wars films accompanied by specifically edited footage from the sci-fi franchise. Well last night, composer John Williams made a surprise appearance at the performance and proceeded to conduct “The Imperial March (Darth Vader’s Theme).” Needless to say, it’s pretty damn cool. Hit the jump to watch video of the Williams-conducted performance and geek out accordingly.

Here’s the video (via @ThatChrisGore):
