WindSync Quintet
Event Description: 

WindSync partners with the Lunar and Planetary Institute to combine music and space in this follow up to 2017's hit Voyager concert program. Dr. David Kring from the Lunar and Planetary Institute will present a mini-lecture about the Apollo Moon missions, and WindSync will perform Apollo, music by Marc Mellits that honors the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. The hard-driving rhythms of Mellits' minimalist, funk-inflected music recall the technological obsession of the Space Race and the music styles emerging in the 1960s.
