“Fly Me to the Moons!” plays at Edelman Planetarium


The Edelman Planetarium at Rowan University will present a live one-hour jazz concert under the stars at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 30, 2014.

A quartet of Rowan musicians — Denis DiBlasio, Dean Witten, Dean Schneider and Doug Mapp — will play favorites such as “When Stars Fell on Alabama,” “East of the Sun” and “Look to the Sky.”

Planetarium director Keith Johnson will accompany them visually with a wide variety of dramatic and colorful imagery using the power of the SciDome immersive digital projection system. In this concert, when the artists play “Fly Me to the Moon,” concertgoers will figuratively go there.

The admission fees for this experimental program will be the same as for regular planetarium public shows: adult, $5; children 12 and younger, $3; seniors older than 60, $3; and Rowan students with ID, $3. Tickets go on sale at the door at 6:30 p.m. The planetarium does not offer advance sales and cannot take credit cards. The planetarium is located on the ground floor of Science Hall on the main Rowan campus in Glassboro.
