On Thursday, December 10th, 2015, The People’s Music School and KV 265 combined forces in an unprecedented collaboration of science and symphony. Hosted by the beautiful Feinberg Theater at Venue SIX10, guests were treated to an evening of films produced by KV 265‘s Dr. Jose Fransisco Salgado with live scores performed by our Albany Park Youth Orchestra.
Dr. Salgado’s films included stunning NASA images of “The Blue Earth”, outer space, and Jupiter – complete with aerial views of sand dunes in Namibia, thunderstorms over Mexico, and auroras on both Earth and Jupiter. Remember when your jaw dropped while watching Planet Earth for the first time? It was like that, but better, and with a youth orchestra performing live while you watched. Incredible.
Terrance Gray, TPMS faculty of over 25 years, led the orchestra through moving performances of the following works:
- The Blue Danube – J. Stauss (1864-1949)
- The Planets, Jupiter – G. Holst (1874-1934)
