WEATHER UPDATE

This just in! Tomorrow night's SYMPHONIC SPACE ODYSSEY concert with Landmarks Orchestra will be relocated to Jordan Hall due to the inclement weather forecast. Doors will open at 6pm, show starts at 7pm. More details here.

Boston Landmarks Orchestra | Christopher Wilkins, conductor In partnership with the Museum of Science’s Charles Hayden Planetarium

Prelude performance: Young Artists from Boston University Tanglewood Institute (BUTI) perform wind and brass chamber music.

John Adams Short Ride in a Fast Machine
Leroy Anderson Summer Skies
Richard Strauss Thus Spake Zarathustra Joaquín Rodrigo In Search of the Beyond
John Williams Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Philip Glass Icarus at the Edge of Time (excerpt)
A celebration in music and live video of the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing with the Museum of Science and the Boston Landmarks Orchestra.

For one night only, this family-friendly evening honors the historic event by pairing custom visuals produced by the Charles Hayden Planetarium with symphonic music inspired by the moon and outer space.

John Adams’ sonic ball-of-fire launches a program that features two intensely vibrant film scores alongside Leroy Anderson’s summer reverie composed for Arthur Fiedler.

Thus Spake Zarathustra—which traces the spiritual evolution of mankind—opens with one of the most recognizable moments in all of music.

It was the soundtrack for the opening minutes of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Rain Date: Thursday, July 18, 2019.

If it rains on July 18 as well, the concert will be held at First Church in Cambridge 11 Garden St, Cambridge, MA 02138.
