The Society for New Music is partnering with The Museum of Science & Technology in premiering Paul Leary’s commissioned “Larger Than Us” (w/ video) and performing Charles Fussell’s chamber opera, “The Astronaut’s Tale”. This program is in celebration of the 50th anniversary of America’s Apollo 8 mission to the lunar orbit which served as a precursor to the mission that gave the world the first man on the moon (and now the New Horizons mission that just passed Ultima Thule, 4.5 billion years old & referenced in the opera). This unique program (especially designed for students), highlights the marvels of space exploration and the latest in music and technology. Performers are the Society All-Stars, conducted by Heather Buchman, tenor Daniel Fields, soprano Corrie Raulli, baritone David Neal, narrator Bruce Coville, stage director Victoria King, visuals by Lorne Covington.
