MUSIC OF THE PLANETS

A musical journey through the Solar System

With a different musical style for each planet (a calypso for hot Mercury; a french love song for Venus, a surfer's tune for Neptune...), this enchanting musical teaches about the planets, asteroids and sun while entertaining. Incorporates all the latest discoveries about NASA photography from recent space missions. Breathtaking artwork by Robert Uhlrich. CenterStage's best seller.

 

"Music of the Planets" is an example of the incredible versatility the Center Stage Musicals embody. It has been performed by casts of 12 to 380 children from grades 2 to 10. Classroom testing has proven its effectiveness as a cirruculum aide, increasing comprehension, making the science curriculum appeal to a broader group of children, and increasing class participation.

"Music of the Planets" has become an annual event in many schools at the 4th grade level.

MARS:
The Red Planet Blues

Many, many million years ago
Comets came down with their ice in tow,
Spread their water all around
Made canals that early astronomers found.
Now the water is frozen to stay
And the atmosphere has all burned away!

I got the Red Planet Blues.
Poor Mars has paid his dues…

(from "Mars, the Red Planet Blues")
