Other Info: This concert poster is from the "Sounds of Space" five-performance engagement held in April 1978. Billed as "A Symphonic Voyage Into The Realm of the Epic Space Films" it was performed at three locations in Northern California - San Jose Center For the Performing Arts, Marin Civic Auditorium, and Berkeley Community Theater. Hugo Rinaldi was the headline conductor, however John Williams led the 100-piece symphony for the Star Wars suite on at least one of the five nights. Lasers at the show were provided by Lasermation. This poster has the blue starry background with the 100-piece symphony dressed as astronauts sitting on the face of a planet in what appears to be a crater. C-3PO is conducting and there is a stray astronaut playing the violin in the upper left hand corner of the poster. The "Sounds of Space" title, in white text, is on top of the blue field background in the formation of a pyramid. The rest of the concert information and playlist of suites (featuring music from Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Flash Gordon and Holst’s Planets) are found below it. It also has the locations, seat prices, and where to obtain tickets for each of the events. The artist signed and dated the poster in the bottom right hand corner.
