About this performance

The first settlement mission to Mars is about to leave and there’s one spot left – for a young person to teach the Astronauts, Doctors and Scientists music, and start the First Intergalactic Orchestra. Over the journey each crew member must keep their brain in shape, learning an instrument and their place in the Orchestra. 

Join Doctor Richard Vaudrey (with possibly a little help from an Extra Terrestrial) as he trains young minds to understand the instruments and sounds of the MSO that will let them unleash the full force of the Orchestra. 

Duration: approx. 50 minutes, no interval

Relaxed performance at 12pm
