Beacon Hill Village is once again teaming up with the Beacon Hill Civic Association for the Boston Landmarks Orchestra opening night concert at the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade. We’ll begin the evening at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail party and appetizer reception in the garden of the Church of the Advent, 30 Brimmer Street, where box dinners will be available to take to the Esplanade for the concert. The concert will be a celebration in music and live video of the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing—with visuals produced by the Hayden Planetarium, and symphonic music inspired by the moon and outer space. John Adams’ sonic ball-of-fire launches the program, followed by Leroy Anderson’s summer reverie composed for Arthur Fiedler. Closing the evening is Thus Spake Zarathustra, which traces the spiritual evolution of mankind, and is the soundtrack for the opening minutes of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. BHV and BHCA members only: $30. Non-members: $35. Price includes cocktail party, box dinner, and chair at the Esplanade.
