Acclaimed composer Michael Giacchino, who scored all three Kelvin Timeline Star Trek films for Paramount Pictures, will be making a stop in Las Vegas this summer for the annual Official Star Trek Convention hosted by Creation Entertainment in August.
Announced today on Creation’s STLV website, Giacchino is slated to appear for a panel discussion on Saturday, August 4, and will stick around for the annual “Saturday Night Gala” musical performance where he’ll step in to conduct the Nevada Pops Orchestra in a medley of Kelvin Timeline music for a performance called “Star Trek Into Darkness and Beyond.”
Here’s the word from Creation’s site:
Multiple award-winning composer of music for films, television and video games including the 2009 “Star Trek” movie, 2013’s “Star Trek Into Darkness,” and 2016’s “Star Trek Beyond,” Michael will be appearing on stage Saturday [date] and then will be a special guest conductor at our annual Saturday Night Gala Celebration featuring the Nevada Pops Orchestra for a special “Star Trek Into Darkness and Beyond” suite.
Due to scheduling, Michael will be unable to sign autographs or do photo ops.
Tough luck for soundtrack collectors that Giacchino won’t have a scheduled window for album signings, but having him part of the week’s musical performances (and a rare on-stage Trek convention appearance) should be a treat for STLV attendees.
Tickets for the “Saturday Night Gala” are on sale now at Creation Entertainment’s STLV portal for $50 each.
