Symphony At Home: Space—The Final Frontier
July 3, 2020
As part of our continuing commitment to Creating Community Through Music, we’re bringing our concerts to you through our Symphony At Home series!
This weekend we’re pleased to bring you our Space—The Final Frontier performance from July 2019!
About the Show
The Gulf Coast Symphony celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing with clips of the historic landing that displayed man’s ingenuity and resolve. We were honored to have Joel Banow join us as Master of Ceremonies. Banow directed the CBS television broadcast of the Lunar landing on July 20, 1969. The program featured music that celebrates space in cinema, including 2001: A Space Odyssey (Also Sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30), Star Trek, Apollo 13, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T., and Holst’s The Planets.
