Houston Symphony Presents New STAR TREK Films with Live Orchestra This Weekend

Movie fans have another way to experience two blockbuster favorites this summer. This weekend, July 18 and 19, the Houston Symphony will perform the film scores live on the Jones Hall stage as audiences watch director J.J. Abrams' mega-hits Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness on a huge screen suspended above the orchestra. The live musical performance will synchronize perfectly with the film and blend seamlessly with dialogue and sound-effects tracks, creating a truly unique and thrilling movie-watching experience, as audiences witness composer Michael Giacchino's masterful scores recreated live before their eyes.

Giacchino himself, a special guest in attendance for both performances, will participate in a brief post-concert question and answer session from the stage before heading to an exclusive meet-and-greet session for those audiences with a meet-and-greet ticket.

The Star Trek presentations are part of the Houston Symphony's annual "Symphony Summer in the City" concert series at Jones Hall in June and July. Focusing on a wide range of recognizable entertainment, these summer programs encourage audiences to experience the live sights and sounds of the orchestra in unique and innovative ways.
