Star Trek The Ultimate Voyage 50th Anniversary Concert - A Review


Star Trek has been a source of inspiration, and entertainment for the last 50 years.  Whether it is on television, or in film.  However, one aspect of Star Trek that is always there, and has changed with the show, but never gets the full reverence that the show has always received was the music.  Yes, there is the poignant orchestral pieces that we are familiar with, but there is a breadth of music that many fans may not be completely familiar with.  This tour brings not only the important pieces of the music to the fans, but the familiar background pieces, as well.  Sunday, April 24th, 2016 Nathan and I had the experience of a lifetime.  To sit with a number of other audience members to enjoy this professionally orchestrated concert, and to have a special VIP backstage access.
