Resident conductor Christopher Dragon will conduct a selection from Williams's scores for Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, Superman, Harry Potter, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and more.
The news comes a week after the symphony announced that it would be canceling its Red Rocks performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, which had been rescheduled for this summer.
The Williams shows, scheduled for 7 p.m. Sunday, May 23, and Tuesday, May 25, will each be limited to a 2,500 capacity; social distancing guidelines and mask requirements will also be in force.
Tickets, which run $55 to $70, go on sale at the Colorado Symphony website at 10 a.m. Friday, April 23.
Red Rocks has already announced that the popular Film on the Rocks series is back, with both drive-in and in-person screenings; a handful of concerts by artists such as Lotus, Zhu, Leftover Salmon and more have also been booked. Lotus kicks off the concert season this week.
