Dramatic vistas, good music, and cake too!
Join us for a celebration of Chopin's birthday that is out of this world.
For almost two centuries, Chopin's music has had a global influence, but in 2009, on the occasion of Chopin's 200th birthday, astronaut Colonel George Zamka took this influence higher, bringing Chopin's music on board the space shuttle Endeavour for a tour of duty aboard the International Space Station.
Now you can ride along...
The Chicago Chopin Foundation is presenting the film "Chopin -- the Space Concert," which was inspired by and documents this event.
