We open our season with an AYS first—an entire score played live to picture! Immerse yourself in the intensity of Academy Award® winning composer Michael Giacchino’s exhilarating score for J.J. Abrams’ blockbuster hit Star Trek Into Darkness. World-renowned conductor and film composer David Newman leads the orchestra and audience in this exciting cinematic adventure!

Composer, Michael Giacchino, and host, Jon Burlingame, will hold a pre-concert Q&A with the audience (starting at 4 pm)!

This is not your typical night at the symphony—cheers, boos (for the villains, that is) and costumes are all encouraged! This event presents a chance to throw on that Starfleet uniform and capture some priceless photos!

51st Season Orchestra Roster:


This was one of our busiest years to date for orchestra auditions, with over 300 musicians auditioning to fill 29 open positions! This was also our first year adopting a “blind” audition process, providing our musicians experience with the gold-standard of the 21st century audition process. The result is an orchestra that reflects the best and brightest young talent in the field, and we can’t wait to hear what they bring to the stage this season!
