Of Note: Classical Music & Cinematography Collide in 'The Moon,' Artosphere's Finale Concert

Jun 27, 2019


A still from "A Trip to the Moon" by George Melies

Musical and cinematic storytelling collide in "The Moon," Artosphere Festival Orchestra's finale concert this Saturday, June 29, at Walton Arts Center.

The concert, featuring music from Richard Strauss, John Williams, Debussy and more, pairs live classical music and narration with the George Melies' 1902 silent film “A Trip to the Moon.” 

Artistic director Francesco Micheli’s vision for "The Moon" project was born from his passion to explain music in other ways.

“We try to build a journey by means of the music. We can say that we are on the Artosphere airlines, able to make an incredible journey between the starts and on the moon,” he said.
