Missed it by that much....

Just discovered that the Cleveland Orchestra, at The Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, did a whole SciFi themed performance on August 16. One hopes that it was recorded to be released at a later date.

Not that I would have been able to go see it, as my travelling days are curtailed til next year, but I would have liked to have shared the info here before it was too late.

Nevertheless, I will share the info here even though it is too late.

The Sith Training Temple website took photos, pretty cool, view them here:

From the Bedford Times Register:

Jack Everly will conduct The Cleveland Orchestra in a "Sci-Fi Spectacular" at the Blossom Festival on Aug. 16, at 7 p.m.

The program features George Takei as narrator. He is best known for his portrayal of Mr. Sulu in the television and film series Star Trek. Vocalist will be Kristen Plumley.

Members of the Blossom Festival Chorus, prepared by Cleveland Orchestra Director of Choruses Robert Porco, also will participate in the program.

Concertgoers are encouraged to come in costume, dressed as their favorite Star Trek or Star Wars character. Star Wars characters from the 501st and the Rebel Legion will attend and be available for photographs with patrons.
