A stunning night at the theater for concert-goers and science fiction fans alike, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra enthralled a nearly filled auditorium with 15 selections from the world of film and television science fiction.

From official release/information:

Star Trek's Mr. Sulu, George Takei, narrates concerts featuring music from Star Wars, Star Trek and Harry Potter Baltimore, Md. (December 12, 2007) — Universes will collide when BSO Principal Pops Conductor Jack Everly leads the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra SuperPops and an all‐star vocal ensemble in iconic works from Star Wars, Star Trek, Superman and E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, January 17 at the Music Center at Strathmore and January 18‐20 at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Symphony audiences rarely see a conductor using a light saber for a baton, singers donning Star Trek apparel, transporter beam special effects or a dazzling laser light show, but the Sci‐Fi Spectacular will have all these thematic elements. The cast includes narrator George Takei, who played Mr. Sulu in Star Trek for 41 years, Broadway tenor Mike Eldred and soprano Kristen Plumley, backed by the Sci‐fi‐ettes choral ensemble. See below for complete program information.
