From the Earth to the Moon and Beyond

Blast off to space with the ISO as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing! Former ISO Principal Trombone, James Beckel, has written a special piece just for this occasion, and it will be performed along with other “interstellar” works in this space-themed concert that explores the connection between art and science!
