Program Notes

Since the beginning of humanity we've been mesmerized by the moon, and what were originally thought to be “seas” appearing on the surface. The "Sea of Tranquility” is probably the best-known of these thanks to the landing of Apollo 11 in 1969. The first movement of Robert Buckley's four-movement suite captures the astronauts' sense of awe and wonder of their journey from lift-off, to weightlessness, to the triumph and jubilation of the lunar landing itself.
