April 26th, "Music Takes Flight - Airborne Symphonies"

A Sound Discoveries™ concert
with special guests Sigourney Weaver and Robert Cuccioli

Join The Little Orchestra Society as we explore the majesty of flight from the early Greeks, the Wright Brothers, Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart through NASA’s missions to the moon, our solar system, and beyond. American composers have long been fascinated with humanity’s dream of flight, and it has inspired such musical giants as Marc Blitzstein (The Airborne Symphony), Samuel Barber (Symphony No.2), Aaron Jay Kernis (Musica Celestis), Gardner Read (Night Flight) and Kurt Weill (The Lindbergh Flight).

The music will be enhanced by spectacular images curated by multimedia designer Elliott Forrest, including HD video and high resolution images provided by NASA. A powerful evening of sights and sounds not to be missed!

Tickets on sale Tuesday, March 2nd.
