Mark November 1st on your calendar to attend the Southwest Symphony's production of "One Small Step." The orchestra together with a high definition media production tells the dramatic story of the history of spaceflight by combining the music of composer Aaron Copland with archival NASA photographs and film footage. The journey begins on earth with "Fanfare for the Common Man" when the ancient explorers thirst for exploration takes them beyond the mountains and the oceans and finally the skies. Then, Kennedy's challenge to be the first to land on the moon signals the "Appalachian Spring" and the great space race. From the development of NASA to Neil Armstrong's historic moon landing, from tragic disaster to monumental achievements, Copland's magnificent themes propel the story into the present and beyond. The concert begins at 7:30 PM at the Cox Auditorium on the Dixie State University campus in St. George, UT Order your tickets NOW at: www.SouthwestSymphony.co

In this month's edition of the Lost Recordings we bring to you an LP set that has been out of print since 1961. This recording, called "Russian Masterworks" is a very important recording to Ken as this was his very first LP purchase of classical music. This recording was already out of print when Ken purchased it from a local Radio Shack store in 1965. This was a 4 LP set on clearance for only $1.99. However, this $1.99 purchase set Ken on the road to a life-long love of classical music. When you think about it, if it weren't for this set of LP's...you probably wouldn't be listening to Classical Music Discoveries today as the show probably wouldn't exist! Also, for the same price of $1.99, you can purchase all the music heard on this show as a digital download.   Who knows? Maybe your purchase of this set for the 1965 clearance price of $1.99 will set a friend or relative of yours on the path to classical music. So now we are proud to bring to you, the life-changing music of "Russian Masterworks" Order below for $1.99
