Jacksonville Symphony boldly going where no one has gone before

Orchestra teams with Bold Events for performance of Star Trek Live at Daily’s Place May 11


The Jacksonville Symphony and Bold Events recently announced the fourth installment of the Daily’s Place Symphony Series: Star Trek Live. 

Director J.J. Abrams re-exhilarated the iconic “Star Trek” franchise with one of the most exciting blockbusters in recent movie-going history — “Star Trek” (2009). Orchestras and audiences can reach warp speed together as they experience composer Michael Giacchino’s thrilling score performed live to picture with the Jacksonville Symphony … and boldly go where no one has gone before.

Symphony associate conductor Nathan Aspinall will lead the orchestra at Daily’s Place on Saturday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m.

The story takes place aboard the USS Enterprise, the most-sophisticated starship ever built, as a novice crew embarks on its maiden voyage. Their path takes them on a collision course with Nero (Eric Bana), a Romulan commander whose mission of vengeance threatens all mankind. If humanity would survive, a rebellious young officer named James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and a coolly logical Vulcan named Spock (Zachary Quinto) must move beyond their rivalry and find a way to defeat Nero before it is too late.

Giacchino has credits that feature some of the most popular and acclaimed film projects in recent history, including “The Incredibles,” “War for the Planet of the Apes,” “Ratatouille,” “Star Trek,” “Jurassic World,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Coco.” His 2009 score for the Pixar hit “Up” earned him an Oscar, a Golden Globe, the BAFTA, the Broadcast Film Critics' Choice Award and two GRAMMY Awards.

Giacchino serves as the Governor of the Music Branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and sits on the advisory board of Education Through Music Los Angeles.

This event will be the fourth concert in the Daily’s Place Symphony Series, a first-of-its-kind partnership between the symphony and Bold Events, a sister company of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Previous performances include a sold-out performance of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” in October 2017, a joint performance with three-time Grammy-winner and hip-hop guitarist, Wyclef Jean, and the world premiere of “Rudy” In Concert.

Tickets for Star Trek Live can be purchased at www.dailysplace.com and www.jaxsymphony.org. Prices start at $19.
