For an out-of-this-world concert experience, journey to The Pavilion for The Earth – An HD Odyssey June 15. This event is a special encore performance of the second film in the HD Odyssey series that showcases our planet. The Earth – An HD Odyssey features the Houston Symphony and striking images taken from NASA missions to Earth’s orbit accompanied by J. Adams “Short Ride in a Fast Machine” and Strauss’ epic tone poem “Also sprach Zarathustra.” The multi-media event takes an existing classical program with strong popular appeal and pairs it with an arresting visual presentation – a project in keeping with the mission of the Houston Symphony that encourages innovative and engaging symphonic performances. The beautiful and mystifying images are shown on a large, 24-foot screen above the stage while the symphony performs. Make this your final destination! Pre-concert activities in the North Plaza begin at 7 p.m.
