In honor of five decades of Star Trek

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek's 1966 debut on NBC, a Vulcan symphony will go on a 100-stop tour around the US and Canada.

The concert will include live music from each TV series with the notable exception of Star Trek: Enterprise, as well music from several movies, including Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Footage from the TV show and various films will be projected onto a 40-foot screen during the performances. Justin Freer, who has previously conducted a symphony of The Lord of the Rings music, will lead the show.

The series lost one of its icons last month when Leonard Nimoy passed away, but the Star Trek franchise continues to prosper.

A pre-tour performance will take place at London's Royal Albert Hall on November 1st, 2015. The tour launches in January 2016 in Florida and finishes in Canada at the end of April.
