Trek Concert To Benefit Youth Symphony

2 min read

A special performance of Star Trek Live in Concert will be held next month in Los Angeles.

The performance of Star Trek into Darkness will be in honor of the American Youth Symphony, who will be performing at the event.

The Star Trek Live in Concert will feature David Newman as conductor, and Jon Burlingame as host. Michael Giacchino will be there as a special guest for the event.

“I was so excited when David (Newman) called to say that the American Youth Symphony wanted to perform Star Trek Into Darkness live to picture,” said Giacchino. “What a thrill it was to give these incredibly talented rising professionals an opportunity to perform the Los Angeles premiere of a project that has been played by some of the finest orchestras in the country, such as The Philadelphia Orchestra and The National Symphony Orchestra, a project that has been heard in cities all over the world from London to Melbourne, from Houston to San Francisco.

“It is particularly meaningful that this type of event be presented in Los Angeles, the home of film music. The American Youth Symphony does a tremendous service by including film score music in their programs to ensure that audiences can experience the breadth of orchestral music available today. I look forward to hearing and watching Star Trek Into Darkness at the beautiful Royce Hall with everyone on September 27th.”

Star Trek Live in Concert will take place Sunday, September 27, at 4 PM at UCLA‘s Royce Hall in Los Angeles. For more information, head to the link located here.
