LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two musicians have earned a greeting from legendary Hollywood film composer John Williams by playing his theme from “Star Wars” outside of his Los Angeles home.

A video posted on YouTube by Michael Miller shows him playing the famous theme on flugelhorn alongside 13-year-old trumpet player Bryce Hayashi on the sidewalk in front of Williams’ home. The performance drew the composer to his door, and he later walked down to shake hands with the musicians.

The 84-year-old Williams joked that he didn’t think the teen would be able to hit the high notes, but he did.

Williams was honored with a life achievement award from the American Film Institute earlier this year. He’s also known for his composures for “Jaws,” the Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park series and other films.
