Event description

Description

She has been a shining beacon in our night sky since the beginning of time, and on July 20, 1969, the first human being touched her surface. Under the artistic direction of Dr. Mikhail Shtangrud, the Burbank Chorale salutes the 50th anniversary of this historic event by celebrating humanity’s endless love affair with the moon in our Spring Concert, Fly Me To The Moon.

NASA’s website* lists around 150 classic and contemporary songs written about the moon, moonlight and love, and although we won’t be performing all of them, we’ll be offering up a variety of songs including Kirby Shaw’s swinging arrangement of Fly Me To the Moon, Mercer/Mancini’s classic Moon River, Lovesong Waltzes by Johannes Brahms, Rhythm of Life with lyrics by Dorothy Fields and music by Cy Coleman, and so much more!

Performing with us during the evening will be our guests, MUSYCA Children’s Choir, Dr. Anna Krendel, and a surprise piano accompanist.

FUN FACTS:

Moon River, from the film Breakfast At Tiffany’s, won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1961.

Frank Sinatra's famous version of Fly Me To The Moon was beamed back from lunar orbit to Earth by the Apollo 10 crew in 1964.
