Planetary Art Show at ONNY Concert

POTSDAM - Students from nine area public schools will have their artwork on display in SUNY Potsdam's Snell Theater lobby for the Orchestra of Northern New York's concert, The Planets - Our World and Beyond!  Concerts are 7:30 pm, Saturday, March 18 and 3:00 pm, Sunday, March 19th.

The art show includes student works that have a celestial or planetary theme. It is being coordinated by Jason Hubbard, art teacher at Norwood-Norfolk Central School, and sponsored by the ONNY Volunteer Guild.

During intermission of the Sunday performance, milk and cookies will be served in the Crane Commons, courtesy of PACES, for all children in attendance.

The ONNY concert features Gustav Holst's The Planets, and includes a multi-media presentation that will be projected onto a large screen above the orchestra. Visual artist Adrian Wyard of Seattle will coordinate the computer software that features NASA photography, original animations, and imagery from telescopes, orbiting spacecraft and rovers on the planets' surfaces, all in sync with the conductor's direction of the work.

Tickets are $22 for adults, $18 seniors and military personnel, and $5 students, ages 6-17, and college students with I.D. For tickets, call 315-267-2277, visit, or purchase them at the door.
