Rehearsal for Star Trek Live in LuzernThis will be the first opportunity in the UK for Star Trek fans to experience their heroes in this way and will be the next instalment in the Hall’s series of celebrating classic films with a live orchestra.

“To hear Michael Giacchino’s music, the secret weapon of the Star Trek series, performed live in the Royal Albert Hall, will be, I promise, a thrill. The full orchestra scoring sessions for the films have been among my favorite life experiences. To give the public a chance to hear this incredible music performed live is a wonderful thing. I cannot wait to go and celebrate Michael’s truly remarkable achievements!”

Michael Giaccino

jj_abrams_michael_giacchino“In 2003, before I wrote my first film score, I saw John Williams conduct ET live to picture at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. I will never forget that event. A little over ten years later, I will have the honour of experiencing my music for Star Trek performed by the incredible 21st Century Symphony Orchestra and Chorus under the baton of the talented conductor, Ludwig Wicki. That in itself is exciting, but the fact that we will be in the Royal Albert Hall in London, is truly amazing. After working with J.J. for 13 years, it will be so rewarding to have his wonderful films brought to life in a whole new way. I look forward to sharing this event with J.J. and the Star Trek fans, new and old”
