Come enjoy a wonderful performance, slide show and unique partnership between COSMIC and the Spaceflight America Museum on Sunday, March 6, beginning at 4:00 PM. The COSMIC Symphony will be held in the atrium of Calvert High School just off Dares Beach road in Prince Frederick, Maryland. The Spaceflight America museum is located in the Arthur Storer planetarium next to the school’s main entrance.
In collaboration with the Spaceflight America Museum, COSMIC Symphony will present an afternoon of space-themed music and astronomy. The symphony will be performing Mozzart’s symphony number 41 “Jupiter” and various selections from Holt’s “The Planets” all set to a captivating slide show comprised of many unique and wonderful images from the Spaceflight America’s photograph archive. “I think it is quite appropriate for an orchestra named COSMIC!” says Sigmund Gorski, co-founder of the museum. Winners of COSMIC’s 12th annual Young Artist Competition will perform with the orchestra.
Tickets to the symphony are available at the door or online at www.cosmicsymphony.org
. Tickets to visit the museum are $3.00 per person and can be purchased with your concert ticket or at the museum on the day of the performance.
