The 50th anniversary of the first moon landing will be celebrated in music by the Symphonic Singers at University of Wisconsin-Stout.

The choir’s winter concert, Stars I Shall Find: A Musical Celebration of Astronomy and Space Exploration, will be at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 910 9th St. E.

“This year marks the 50th year since the moon landing, as well as the year we first took a photo of a black hole. Our concert thus celebrates everything the night sky inspires in humankind through a wide spectrum of musical genres,” said Associate Professor Jerry Hui, Symphonic Singers director.

Along with the music, an educational script has been created as a semesterlong collaboration of a student team. The project is supported by the Baldrige Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration Committee. Members of the team include:

  • Sarah Dickson, 2018 alumna, entertainment design
  • Shane Ender, of Eau Claire, computer science
  • Amara Miller, of Andover, Minn., environmental science
  • Laura Moran, of Euless, Texas, retail merchandising and management
  • Charlie Peavey, of Minneapolis, graphic design and interactive media
  • Ethan Stewart, of Eau Claire, computer networking and information technology
  • Casey Tilkens, of Green Bay, group leader, science education

A reception will be held after the concert, including star-gazing led by the Chippewa Valley Astronomical Society.

UW-Stout offers a minor in performing arts.
