Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing

7PM

Women’s Chorus

Josef Strauss           Sphärenklänge (Music of the Spheres)
Claude Debussy       Clair de Lune
James Becke           From The Earth To The Moon and Beyond
Gustav Holst            The Planets  “Side-By-Side” with EPYO

A space-themed concert to commemorate the 50th anniversary of NASA’s 1969 moon landing! Indiana composer James Beckel wrote From The Earth To The Moon and Beyond especially for this occasion. Complete with narration and imagery, the piece celebrates one of mankind’s most incredible achievements. In an unprecedented educational collaboration, 150 members of the EPO and Evansville Philharmonic Youth Orchestra will join forces for an unforgettable performance of Gustav Holst’s The Planets. This blockbuster work sky-rocketed Holst to fame, and the climactic “Mars” movement inspired the music of Star Wars. Holst portrays the moods of the planets as serene and beautiful, flickering and flighty, mysterious and magical.
