For Father’s Day this year, my brother and I gave my dad tickets to the Star Trek: Live in Concert performance at the Hollywood Bowl. Having just attended The Little Mermaid in Concert: Live to Film a month prior, we had a good idea of what the night was going to be like, but like before, this show took our breath away. The composer of the score for the recent Star Trek reboot films, Michael Giacchino, gave an introduction and dedicated the showing to the late Anton Yelchin, the actor who portrayed Pavel Chekov.

The LA Philharmonic played throughout the entire film (the 2009 reboot), and a local choir sang the vocals in the background. This experience made us realize how important the score is in setting the tone of the movie. It is easy to forget how crucial the music is in controlling our emotions and reactions to the visuals. We often don’t even acknowledge the incredible amount of detail and effort that goes into these melodies and sound effects. This concert gave me a greater appreciation of film composers and the professionals that play these scores. My family will definitely be going to future Live in Concert events because this showing was simply amazing!
