Music of Star Trek™ & More Sci-Fi

During the Houston Symphony’s Music of Star Trek™ & More Sci-Fi, “Attendees dressed as their favorite characters can participate in the symphony’s costume contest,” according to press materials. Ah, yeah. Geeks, don’t fail us now. Hearing a full orchestra play soundtrack selections from Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise would be even better sitting next to some dude holding up the Vulcan salute and wearing a tight, pastel sweater with a homemade logo on the left breast. But don’t be surprised if you see HAL 9000 or Count Baltar in the crowd as well — the show also includes tunes from 2001: A Space Odyssey and Battlestar Galactica. C’mon, Trekkies, don’t be shy — you only live long and prosper once. 7:30 p.m. 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $25 to $95.
Thu., July 9, 7:30 p.m., 2009
