The Pavilion at John Knox Village
Doors open at 6pm for cocktails and mingling, performance at 7pm
Join the Lee’s Summit Symphony for their season opener where they will invite former Lee’s Summit R-7 students to “return to the mothership” and perform with the orchestra. Mothership by Mason Bates will be music to your ears and eyes with a corresponding video to transport you to another world.
You’ll also hear these classic pieces with a space theme: The Planets: Mars & Jupiter by Gustav Holst, Also Sprach Zarathustra (the theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey) by Richard Strauss, Symphony #48 (Vision of Andromeda) Finale by Alan Hovhaness, and Flying Theme from E.T. by John Williams, and more. Our co-conductors, Russ Berlin and Kirt Mosier, said this performance promises to be out of this world!
