This star-studded concert will be full of music from your favorite sci-fi films. Emmy Award-winning journalist and film critic Gary Cogill returns to the WSO stage to share film insights behind the music. Guest conductor Alex Amsel is an orchestral and operatic conductor as well as a music educator for students of all ages. He has worked with the Baltimore Symphony, Fort Worth Symphony, and Houston Grand Opera.

Hear music ranging from Star Wars and Star Trek to Interstellar and other sun and space-related pop music. Other special guests may be announced. All are welcome to come dressed as your favorite sci-fi character!
