Astin's Sky Adventure - audio CD

This was such a fun pair of projects! I had the great fortune to score these late in 2014. What I love about the Howard B. Owens Planetarium, located in Lanham, MD, is that it provides so many opportunities to engage the student body to contribute such things as original artwork, technical support and narration. I am hopeful to be able to work for them again and cannot wait to see what magic they create when a group of students and faculty come together to work as a team of educators - delighting audiences under the dome with their results.

These scores contain moments of mystery, suspense and wonder as characters experience all sorts of revelations in their respective stories.
