Join us at 7 p.m. , Thursday, Dec. 5, at the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium at Santa Fe College for “Upon a Midnight Clear”, a concert “under the stars” featuring songs of the holiday season with the live electronic music of world-renowned composer and artist Jonn Serrie.

“Upon a Midnight Clear” combines the lush, romantic and ethereal sound of Jonn Serrie with the melodies of the season. Warm, peaceful and sensual tones take the holidays to the far reaches of space.  Combine the music of Jonn Serrie with the beautiful starfield of the planetarium’s Goto Chronos space simulator and you have an experience you’ll remember for years to come.

Jonn Serrie is a diverse instrumentalist best known internationally as the preeminent composer of space music.

The Kika Silva Pla Planetarium at Santa Fe College is the first stop on his multi-planetarium concert tour this year, and we’d love for you to join us!

You may recognize some of Jonn Serrie’s music if you’ve visited the planetarium for our “Florida Skies” presentation on Friday nights.  “Jonn’s music has delighted audiences around the world, and to have him perform Christmas music live in our planetarium is going to be a amazing experience.”, says planetarium coordinator, James C. Albury.

Here is an audio sample of a selection Mr. Serrie’s will perform during the performance:
