From Gustav Holst’s Planets Suite through David Bowie’s “Major Tom” and John Williams “Theme from Star Wars”, music and space have enjoyed a long history together.
Now you can hear all of these in one musical celebration of space with the New Britain Symphony Orchestra’s program entitled “About Space” on November 8 at 3:00 pm in Welte Hall on the CCSU campus.
As well as all your favorites, the orchestra will perform the remarkable “Icarus at the Edge of Time” by Phillip Glass, the first time this piece has ever been performed in Connecticut.
Students and children are free. Adults are $20.
…and if you want to couple this with a planetarium visit with your friends, enter the free drawing for an exclusive show for you and 30 friends. Entry forms available at the Copernican Planetarium. Our next free public show is this Saturday, October 17, at 8 PM. The title is “The Search for Intelligence.”
