Boldly go with JMR and the Pops on a mission to experience epic scores from Star Wars and Star Trek, along with selections from orchestral masterpieces such as Holst’s The Planets and Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra (popularized in 2001: A Space Odyssey). Host and narrator George Takei, “Mr. Sulu” himself of Star Trek fame, guides this space-themed multimedia musical extravaganza, featuring breathtaking NASA images on the big screen. Dean Regas from the Cincinnati Observatory helps us distinguish “science fact” from science fiction.

Spectacular: a word that describes the man, the music and every concert that Pops Founder Erich Kunzel touched. Join us as we pull out all the stops in an orchestral salute to the music, mirth and majesty of the Kunzel era, featuring solos by members of your Cincinnati Pops. Hear thrilling selections that Erich championed, from classic film scores and Broadway, including ET: The Extra Terrestrial and The Sound of Music, plus favorites by Strauss, Gershwin and Mancini. And it wouldn’t be a fitting tribute to Erich without his greatest hit of all, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.
