Escondido Choral Arts will honor the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the NASA moon landing in a festive, celebratory concert with an ensemble of orchestra, chorus, soloists, and the Escondido community. This important, historical achievement is a source of pride for our country and community and will be honored with a commission of an original composition by the internationally known composer, Stephen Sturk and lyricist Charles Anthony Silvestri.

The Center Chorale, Center Children’s Chorus and community singers from church and community college choirs, will create lasting memories of this landmark event.
