‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘House of Cards,’ ‘Downton Abbey’ Composers in Spotlight at TV Academy Concert (Exclusive)
In an effort to boost awareness of the role music composers play in television, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences will sponsor its first-ever live concert on May 21 at UCLA’s Royce Hall.

A 70-piece orchestra and 40-voice choir are expected to perform music by at least nine active TV composers, including John Lunn (“Downton Abbey”), Jeff Beal (“House of Cards”), Bear McCreary (“Da Vinci’s Demons”), Trevor Morris (“The Borgias”) and Ramin Djawadi (“Game of Thrones” pictured).

ATAS’ event will follow a similar performance of Oscar-nommed songs and scores set for Thursday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences at the same venue. However, the TV Acad’s concert will come well before this year’s Primetime Emmy noms are unveiled on July 10.

For the performance, Lunn will fly in from London to conduct his “Downton” suite for orchestra. The rest of the participants are L.A.-based.
