Over fifty years ago, a brave American man stepped out of a landing craft onto the surface of the moon and made history. With the help of the Demetrius Klein Dance Company and four exciting pieces of all-American music, Palm Beach Symphony brings that indelible moment of Milky Way magic to the stage through an interactive concert in which students will literally take part in exploring such scientific concepts as the Earth’s rotation, gravity and telescope viewing. All this while thrilling to a powerful Copland fanfare, the soaring themes of Star Wars and sharing in the adventures of a very special resident of Earth’s satellite, Rocky de Luna, an inquisitive moon rock. With a special narrative accompanied by the music of Copland’s A Lincoln Portrait, students will meet Rocky as she hitches a ride with two friendly NASA astronauts on the Apollo 11 lunar module en route back to planet Earth. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin show Rocky some out-of-this-world views of the moon, help define the moon’s place in the solar system, describe how the moon affects all life on Earth…and leave Rocky with a sense of wonder and pride in her “rockdom”!
