You have have seen the multi-city tour for Star Wars: In Concert, but there is actually a (smaller) Star Trek tour also going on. "Star Trek: The Music," hosted by Bob Picardo and John DeLancie, has been performed by a number of orchestras in North America since 2007. The next stop is next week in Calgary, Alberta. Details below, plus a guide to more January Star Trek events.

The official description for the show from the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra:
The CPO boldly goes where it has never gone before! In this concert of the century, Star Trek legends John de Lancie, (“Q”) and Robert Picardo, (“The Doctor”) host an incredible evening, bringing to life the epic story of the Star Trek Phenomenon with musical highlights from the TV series and films. Lobby decorations from the actual sets will make this the ultimate Star Trek experience. Costumes welcome!
There will be three performances from Wednesday January 13th to Friday January 15th. More info and tikets at cpo-live.com
Calgary is the fifth city to perform "Star Trek: The Music". In 2007 and 2008 the show has been performed by orchestras in Dallas, Toronto, Cincinnati and Denver. There are no announcements for future shows at this time.
