Event Description: 

The woodwinds quintet WindSync partners with the Lunar and Planetary Institute to combine music and space in this follow up to 2017's hit Voyager concert program. A speaker from the Lunar and Planetary Institute will present a mini-lecture about the Apollo moon missions, and WindSync will premiere 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.
