SILENT NIGHT STARRY NIGHT
SMITH THE CONSOLATION OF APOLLO
This holiday season accompany The Thirteen’s song-filled journey through the cosmos and the Christmas story. Featuring your favorite holiday carols, The Thirteen’s own arrangement of Silent Night, and contemporary composer Kile Smith’s driving and touching The Consolation of Apollo, this concert can’t be missed! Hailed as “ecstatically beautiful,” The Consolation of Apollo pairs the words of the Apollo 8 astronauts on Christmas Eve 1968 with the writings of the Roman philosopher Boethius for a fantastical take on the Christmas story. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, this performance will be accompanied by projected images from NASA’s Hubble telescope.
This program is made possible by a generous gift from Clint & Missy Kelly.
