Voyage to the moon: Orchestra of the Swan makes its film Luna free online for Random Acts of Kindness Day

Today is not only Ash Wednesday, but Random Acts of Kindness Day when we are urged to explore the good. In a gesture in support of this, Orchestra of the Swan is offering its digital concert Luna free online for 48 hours.

The concert is one of the orchestra's straight-to-streaming Night Owl Digital concerts series. Exploring the moon as an object of longing, mystery, and romanticism, it tells the story of the unprecedented scientific leap that captured the world’s imagination, as man took to the moon half a century ago, intertwining words by Sylvia Plath, Tehereh Mafi, James Joyce, John F. Kennedy, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong with music by Philip Glass, Haydn, Beethoven, Paul Simon, Schönberg and including works from the Swan’s Artistic Director, David Le Page, all beautifully filmed.

Luna can be streamed free from 17 to 19 February 2021 via the orchestra's website.
