Space Classics

Space ClassicsThis Friday evening our family will be heading to the Perth Concert Hall for an amazing musical experience.

The West Australian Symphony Orchestra will be ready to launch their audience on a journey to infinity and beyond with two concerts, this Friday and Saturday evenings, titled Space Classics. They’ll be packing in as much space themed music as they can, which is sure to delight both young and old.

They’ll play classics such as Holst’s The Planets and the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey as well as John Williams’ music from Superman, Thunderbirds, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, The Return of the Jedi and Close Encounters of the Third Kind and a whole lot more.

Late last week I spoke with Marshall McGuire, Executive Manager, Artistic Planning with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra during my morning radio programme on 98.5 Sonshine FM.

  • We will miss you by a day – we are going on Saturday. Don’t give away the ending! 😉

    • So we get to see and hear it first … but you get to see and hear it after they’ve had just a little bit more practice. 🙂
