Star Trek - Live in Concert
For the last few weeks I’ve been busy studying the score for Michael Giacchino’s Star Trek. It’s a real monster, with over 1 hour and 40 minutes of music, and at the start of February I had the pleasure of conducting both the Melbourne and Queensland Symphony Orchestras over consecutive weekends. With an audience full of “Trekkies”, the concert was a real crowd pleaser, with many commenting that it’s the only way to see the movie. I’m biased of course, but I have to agree! There’s nothing quite like hearing the full symphony orchestra envelop the room in their glorious sound whilst munching on popcorn and going where no man has gone before. Also check out this little interview I did with TV host Paul Verhoeven for his new YouTube series, Talk Nerdy To Me.
