LUNAR Ensemble brings world premiere of “To See the Stars” to the Maryland Science Center Davis Planetarium. "To See the Stars" is a 45-minute song cycle for chamber ensemble that explores the depths of humankind's curiosity and wonder when confronted with the mystery of outer space. Commissioned to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the launch of the groundbreaking Hubble Space Telescope, these songs by award-winning composer Faye Chiao and lyricist/librettist Dara Weinberg that examine the history of astronomy and the human desire to come into closer contact with the stars. Specially programmed visual projections designed exclusively for the Davis Planetarium’s domed screen will complement and enhance the live musical performance featuring the LUNAR Ensemble, an award-winning new music collective, under the direction of conductor Gemma New.
