Free Family Concert: One Small Step
Presented by Palm Beach Symphony
One Small Step is an interactive concert with music, dance, and narration appropriate for people of all ages.
Fifty years ago this summer, a brave American man stepped out of a landing craft onto the surface of the moon and made history. It was an indelible moment of Milky Way magic, and the Palm Beach Symphony wants to bring a little bit of this remarkable achievement back to the students of Palm Beach County with One Small Step, an orchestra-and-dance program like no other.
With the help of the Demetrius Klein Dance Company and four exciting pieces of all-American music, the orchestra will present an interactive concert for students of all ages in which they will literally take part in exploring such scientific concepts as the Earth’s rotation, gravity and telescope viewing. All this while thrilling to a powerful Copland fanfare, the soaring themes of Star Wars and sharing the adventures of a very special resident of Earth’s satellite, Rocky de Luna, an inquisitive moon rock.
With a special narrative accompanied by the music of Copland’s A Lincoln Portrait, students will meet Rocky as she hitches a ride with two friendly NASA astronauts on the Apollo 11 lunar module en route back to planet Earth. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin show Rocky some out-of-this-world views of the moon, help define the moon’s place in the solar system, describe how the moon affects all life on Earth ... and leave Rocky with a sense of wonder and pride in her “rockdom”!
Location: Forest Hill Community High School
General Admission tickets for the public family concert are free of charge. Reserved seating is available for $10.
