Join NWS for an extraordinary journey through the cosmos and into the unknown with special musical guests and scientists from NASA. With galactic imagery illuminating the performance hall, conductor Edwin Outwater leads an unforgettable voyage to Mars and Jupiter in Gustav Holst’s The Planets, the moon in Claude Debussy’s ethereal tribute, worlds beyond in John Williams’ iconic film scores and much more. Grammy Award-winning composer and conductor Eric Whitacre will take the stage for his Deep Field, inspired by the world-famous Hubble Telescope. It vividly portrays the wonders of the universe by pairing orchestra with chorus and audience, who join the performance by using an app. Ticketholders are invited to join a post-concert discussion with the artists and NASA scientists.
