About this Performance
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, hear how Hollywood’s composers have been inspired by the achievements of American space travel. A mix of music, film clips, and archival footage will tell the story of our push to explore beyond Earth’s atmosphere, from the thrill of the space race to the possibility of missions to Mars. Experts from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena will join the orchestra to underscore the impact of California’s scientists and engineers on our achievements in space.
