Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra Performance: Esquivel! Space Music from Planet Earth!
March 27 at 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Orlando Science Center and the Orlando Philharmonic are excited to present, “Esquivel! Space Music from Planet Earth!”
Come celebrate the music and life of Mexican musician and legendary composer, Juan Garcia Esquivel. The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will be presenting a live narration and unique performance featuring an original story about Esquivel on our Terrace located on Level 4 at 11:30 am and 1:00 pm.
Esquivel was an icon of space age pop music during the 1950’s and the 1960’s through his use of novel instrument combinations in his compositions. He was also a pioneer in stereo recording techniques at that time such as alternating sounds from left and right audio channels.
Families and children will be immersed in the program as the wonderful music brings the story of Esquivel to life! Guests who attend the performance will also have the opportunity to participate in activities prior to and after the live experience led by OSC. Seating on our Terrace for this program will be limited so don’t miss out!
Orlando Science Center is proud to partner with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra for this special performance thanks to generous support from The Pabst Steinmetz Foundation. The live performance was created by duo Rodrigo Castro and Magnolia Orli and will be conducted by Dr. Mauricio Céspedes who will be accompanied by musicians of the Orlando Philharmonic with narration of the story by Fredy Ruiz, from the Orlando Repertory Theatre.
