Join Michael Giacchino, the Oscar®-winning composer behind some of your favourite film themes, as we celebrate his 50th birthday with his first ever major career retrospective. This personal, one-off event will also take a rare glimpse at the man behind the magic, sharing never-before-seen footage from Michael’s childhood and early career.
The concert will feature music and film clips from Rogue One, Lost, Up, Jurassic World, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Incredibles, as well as the rebooted Star Trek series. A host of very special friends and colleagues will be on hand to honor Michael, including guest host Adam Savage (Myth Busters, Unchained Reaction). The evening will include many world premiere pieces and will feature personal film clips and stories.
Michael Giacchino, who also has a BAFTAs, Golden Globe® and several Grammy Awards®, will receive the ultimate honour as part of our Festival of Film, when conductor Ludwig Wicki will perform music from his greatest scores, with the Cinematic Sinfonia and English Chamber Choir.
