Event Description

Due to the COVID-19 situation, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the 201920 season, including Summer with the Symphony. This cancellation includes most concerts that were previously announced as postponed. 

Featuring an epic, gripping score by acclaimed film composer James Horner, director Ron Howard’s Academy Award®-winning drama (Best Sound, Best Film Editing) recounts the harrowing true story of the aborted Apollo 13 lunar mission and NASA’s effort to return the jeopardized astronauts (Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton) to Earth safely.
