The Allen Philharmonic Orchestra & Symphony Chorus presents a free, family-friendly program of music inspired by space— Out of this World.
“We’re thrilled to bring our community a performance for all ages that brings the fun and fascinating aspects of space to life.”
On Sunday, March 19, from 3-4 p.m., audiences young and old can hear music from Star Wars, Star Trek, and selections from space-inspired classical works such as Gustav Holst’s The Planets. Th highlight of the afternoon will be the world premiere of composer David MacDonald’s new work for children’s audiences titled What. On Earth. Was That? — a piece about an alien who finds his way to Earth and can only communicate through music.
