AIAA get together at Nashville Symphony's Earth -- An HD Odyssey  


Schermerhorn Symphony Center, Nashville, TN 

Start Time

End Time

1/13/2018 10:00 PM 


On Saturday, January 13, 2018, at 8:00 p.m.The Nashville Symphony will present The Earth -- An HD Odyssey. This program, originally performed by the Houston Symphony, presents breathtaking images from the International Space Station accompanied by John Adams' Short Ride in a Fast Machine and Richard Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra (perhaps best known for its use in Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey). The program also includes featured pianist Ingrid Filter performing Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1. If you are interested in attending this event, the AIAA Greater Huntsville Section will be coordinating a meetup prior to the symphony at a nearby restaurant. Tickets for this event went on sale on Friday and can be purchased at the following link: We realize this is many months out, but based on the popularity of Nashville Symphony's performance of Holst's The Planets last year (accompanied by footage from NASA's planetary science missions), we anticipate this event will also sell out. A note on seating: Since the large screen behind the symphony orchestra faces the center of the symphony hall, we recommend getting tickets in the center seating -- orchestra and orchestra view or center-oriented founder's circle and balcony seats. The boxes and loge along the sides of the hall may have an obstructed view. When you click "buy tickets', a seating chart for the symphony will appear and you can select your specific seats. If you are interested in this event or have purchased tickets, please contact our director of special projects, Tracie Prater (, so she can coordinate among those who are attending and provide additional information as we get closer to the event.
