‘Star Trek Beyond’ Live Concerts On The Way, Ultimate Voyage Concerts Go Global

Star Trek Beyond To Get Live Orchestra Treatment

The Star Trek Live film concert series, which began in 2013 with orchestras performing in sync to 2009’s Star Trek and to 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, is adding last summer’s Star Trek Beyond to their repertoire. Film Concerts Live has announced they will be bringing Michael Giacchino’s score for Star Trek Beyond to orchestras around the world.

We will provide an update when the first cities for the Beyond concerts are revealed. More information about the Beyond concerts (and where cities will be listed) is available at at the FilmConcertsLive website.

Ultimate Voyage Concert Tour Return To The UK

And Star Trek Live isn’t the only Trek concert series going on. Star Trek: The Ultimate Voyage tour had its world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in November 2015, followed by a series of orchestra concerts in over 70 cities, mostly in North America (see TrekMovie review from San Francisco). The concerts feature music spanning across the franchise, all performed with iconic Star Trek footage shown behind the orchestra.

I wanna go so badly. Almost did STID but had a conflict. I think that would’ve been the best one to see, I like its score the best.

Saw the Baltimore Symphony do ST & STID, fanastic experience, can’t wait to go Beyond… Also, caught ST Ultimate Voyage in NY. It was the single greatest Trek “event” that I’ve attended, and I’m glad to see that it’s not completely dead. Maybe this is *part* of why they never released a DVD of it…
