TRIBUTE TO JAMES HORNER invites you to an evening of film music by two-time Academy Award winner James Horner. Excerpts from his most memorable film scores like TITANIC, THE MASK OF ZORRO and AVATAR are presented with and without visuals (stills and clips). Lighting design adds to this audio-visual concept.

James Horner had his breakthrough in the early 1980s when he composed the scores for STAR TREK: THE WRATH OF KHAN and STAR TREK: SEARCHING FOR SPOCK. More than one hundred scores were to follow. In particular, the fantasy worlds exude an unwavering fascination towards the composer. His diverse approaches to fantasy and science fiction movies can beheard in his music for ALIENS, WILLOW, BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS and THE ROCKETEER.
