The world famous documentary series The Blue Planet is a joint production from BBC and Discovery channel featuring awesome soundtrack music composed by composer George Fenton that enhances the scenes with life and character. The music in The Blue Planet goes so well with the visual presentation that it creates a grand soundscape that's compelling to audiences around the globe and has won the Emmy Award and British Academy Award. At times you hear mystical sound from the ocean, at times you hear the wonder of life beyond explanation. The series was shot in duration of 5 years on locations across all seven continents. It brings the wonders of the world in front of our eyes, saving the travel cost.

Now it just gets better! Step away from the TV and hear the music in live performance! Accompanied by scenes projected on giant screen, you will experience the beauty of our planet expressed by the entire symphony orchestra.

It is a message that we can’t miss or ignore.
