Join the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra and Music Director/Conductor Kirk Muspratt for “One Small Step” on Friday, May 17, 2019 at 7:30pm at Monbeck Auditorium at Highland High School (9135 Erie Street, Highland.) The concert will feature the Symphony Chorus and special guest former NASA Astronaut Colonel Jerry Ross.
Celebrating the ingenuity and bravery of America’s first astronauts and the awe of space! Cinema and the Symphony meet as videos and photos from the historic 1969 Moon Landing accompany two of Copland’s most popular pieces, Fanfare for the Common Man and Appalachian Spring. Themes from Star Wars, Star Trek, and Apollo 13, Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra from 2001, and a selection of Holst’s Planets will make this an out-of-this-world experience.
Colonel Jerry Ross, a Crown Point native, will give a short presentation about his time in space accompanied by his own photos from his career as an astronaut aboard the space shuttle.
Tickets are $33-$73 with student tickets at just $10.
