Boldly Go Where No Orchestra Has Gone Before with “Star Trek: Live in Concert,” Saturday, Oct. 17

In 2009, director J.J. Abrams re- envisioned and re-invigorated the Star Trek franchise with a brilliantly casted ensemble, stunning visual effects and action-packed plot. Michael Giacchino’s, Grammy-nominated musical score contributed in no small part to the film’s success. At “Star Trek: Live in Concert,” the Grand Rapids Symphony orchestra brings to life Giacchino’s score as “Star Trek” (2009) is screened simultaneously in high definition. This will literally be in true surround sound as you're transported into the futuristic world of Captain Kirk, Spock and the rest of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew.
