This month marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of Huntsville’s U.S. Space and Rocket Center, so the HSO is fueling up to celebrate the Rocket City’s starring role in aerospace achievement. Don’t miss stellar themes from 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Star Trek franchise, as well as a stunning, immersive multimedia performance of selections from Gustav Holst’s The Planets.
The HSO is the oldest, continuously operating professional orchestra in the state of Alabama. The Orchestra’s genesis is intricately linked with the arrival of Wernher von Braun and his German rocket team, marking the beginning of an era of sensational growth in our city and creating a unique synthesis between old and new, cherished traditions and unprecedented progress.
