Hear what Star Trek, Live in Concert means to the film's director and the composer of the score:

J.J. Abrams, Director

"One of the highlights of my experience working on the Star Trek films has been the opportunity to collaborate with Michael Giacchino.  

His beautiful, powerful, inspired musical scores elevate, transform and enrich every scene

...or sequence in these two films.  While the music as heard on the original soundtracks is thrilling, experiencing these scores performed live, as I was lucky to, during the recording sessions, is profound. The wonder of hearing -- and watching -- a full orchestra bring these scores to life is something I will never forget. I am so happy that you get to experience this, too. I could not be more grateful to Michael, to all the brilliant musicians who originally brought these scores to life, and to those equally astounding artists playing live."

Michael Giacchino, Composer

"It is an honor for me to be a part of the Star Trek legacy. I was a huge fan of the series when I was a kid.  J.J. Abrams' inspired new vision of the Star Trek saga brought me immediately back to my childhood, as if I was watching Gene Roddenberry's brilliant creation for the first time on television.  J.J. and I are among the lucky few who get to hear the world's most talented musicians bring a score like Star Trek to life in person.  But now that’s all changed. For me, the most exciting aspect of the Star Trek film with orchestra concerts is that audiences now have an opportunity to experience the films in a way that can’t be replicated in their living rooms—with a full orchestra."
