Description

Stream OOTS’ unique musical experience, Luna, part of our Night Owl Digital Concert Series, from the comfort of your home. ‘Night Owl’ is OOTS’ informal, themed, cross-genre strand of concert activity, aimed at broadening our audience base.

Inspired by planet Earth’s mysterious neighbour – the moon. Music and words combine to provide a moving account of how our beautiful satellite came into being and to tell the story of the unprecedented scientific leap that captured the world’s imagination more than half a century ago. We also explore the idea of the moon as an object of longing, mystery and romanticism with words by James Joyce, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong and featuring music by Haydn, Beethoven, Debussy, Paul Simon and Schönberg.

Please note you will only need one link per household.

Orchestra of the Swan Players:

Violins: David Le Page and Catherine Leech, Viola: Vanessa McNaught, Cello: Christopher Allan, Bass: Claire Whitson, Piano: David Gordon, Percussion: Tim Farmer. Directed by David Le Page.
