The "Swinging/Stars" show will feature space-themed classics including Elton John's "Rocket Man," Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon," and even children's favorites like "When You Wish Upon a Star." The orchestra will be performing with an eclectic array of guest artists including pianist extraordinaire Alan Steinberger, inspired bassist Michael Valerio, percussion prince Ted Atkatz, guitar virtuosos Lawrence Juber and Martin Chalifour, and the ARORA a cappella group.
Providing a more substantial element to the evening is Dr. Michael Watkins, the director of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and formerly mission manager for the Curiosity Mars Rover mission.
"He will be sharing with our audience the unbelievable wonders of space exploration and reminding us that the worldwide headquarters for pioneering the great beyond just happens to be right here in our own backyard," notes MUSE/IQUE founder, artistic director, and conductor Rachel Worby.
Doors open and mingling begins at 7:00 p.m. Tasty treats and libations will be available for purchase. Please note that, although you may bring your own culinary delights, there will be limited access to tables.
