The Return of the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra!
One Giant Leap − “The Planets” and Beyond
Saturday, July 20
After a three-year hiatus, the FSO returns to SVMF with a performance commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the First Moon Landing. The day of this concert will mark exactly 50 years since Neil Armstrong made history as the first person to set foot on the moon.
The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra will take you on a musical journey through the galaxy with Gustav Holst’s “The Planets.” Comprised of seven movements, each is named after a planet. The orchestra will perform against the backdrop of fascinating imagery of planets and space scenes provided by NASA, projected on to a huge video screen.
One Giant Leap – “The Planets” and Beyond will be a great concert for all ages. Families can take advantage of SVMF’s discounted flate rate of $10 per children’s lawn ticket, ages 3-17. (Children under 3 are admitted to the Lawn at no charge.) Come together and bring the whole family to SVMF! (Children’s discount on lawn tickets apply to all concerts.)
