4BR Shop: Apollo 11 (Drew Fennell)

There is no better time to celebrate the first steps on the moon — so why not add Apollo 11 to your concert repertoire from Cantatio Music

Apollo
  The work celebrates the iconic achievement of Apollo 11

No better time to add to your concert programme a work that celebrates the incredible Apollo 11 mission that sent men to the Moon in 1969.

Drew's work is a programmatic depiction of NASA's launch, three day journey and historic landing in a celebration of the American spirit.

Man on the Moon

The piece begins with a musical statement depicting President Kennedy's words "…before the decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth"before we witness the countdown and the violent and fiery launch of the Saturn V rocket.

The incredible experience of the peaceful weightlessness of space segues into the conclusion as Neil Armstrong descends the ladder from the lunar module to the Moon's surface.

Duration: approx 11 minutes

Price: £75.00
