National Geographic: Symphony Our World 2018 Worldwide Tour Dates
National Geographic and Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc. have formed a new partnership to present the all-new National Geographic: Symphony for Our World, which will begin touring in April 2018. Combining stunning National Geographic natural history footage with an original symphony and theme created by Emmy- and BAFTA-nominated Bleeding Fingers Music, featuring composers Austin Fray and Andrew Christie, Symphony for Our World is a breathtaking musical journey through some of the world’s most incredible wildlife spectacles. With MGP Live as the official promoter, more than 50 shows are planned for 2018, and initial tour dates are now available for a limited pre-sale and public on-sale beginning March 9.
This inspiring 90-minute live orchestral performance will be presented in concert venues around the world starting in spring 2018, with groundbreaking imagery and storytelling from 130 years of beloved National Geographic history matched in perfect synchronization with a live orchestra and choir. An inaugural performance will be held in San Francisco at the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall on Earth Day, April 22, 2018.
The tour’s first performance is in conjunction with the television broadcast premiere of ‘Symphony for Our World’, an hour-long special which airs commercial-free on the same day on Nat Geo WILD. The ‘Symphony for Our World’ television event will premiere globally in 140 countries.
Driven by a five-part composition, Symphony for Our World pairs artistry with science as it brings viewers from the depths of the sea, up to the coastlines, onto land, through mountains and finally into the sky. Each environment will be accompanied by a different orchestral movement, resulting in a powerful musical tribute to the beauty and wonders of our wild world.
“National Geographic has inspired generations to explore, understand and protect our world. Bringing this type of storytelling to life in symphony is an incredible honor,” said Jason Michael Paul, President of Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc. “We’re bringing together everything I’ve learned from over 20 years in music production with National Geographic to create something truly special.”
“We’re excited to share the breathtaking beauty of our world in this unique symphonic format with our partner Jason Michael Paul Entertainment, Inc., a prominent leader in film orchestra projects,” said Rosa Zeegers, Executive Vice President, Consumer Products and Experiences at National Geographic Partners.
“Combining 130 years of National Geographic’s stunning visual storytelling with original music from award-winning composers will bring the story of our planet to life in a truly special way for audiences all over the world.”
