COURTESY OF MUSEUM OF BOULDER
Longmont — the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Longmont Symphony Orchestra. Its continuing mission: To celebration more than 60 years of spaceflight in an auditorium named after local astronaut Vance Brand. To boldly feature music from Star Wars, Star Trek, ‘E.T.,’ ‘Apollo 13,’ Strauss’ ‘Also Sprach Zarathustra’ (from ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’), plus selections from Holst’s ‘The Planets,’ ‘Voyage’ and more. The LSO Guild’s Dessert Social is held before and during intermission of this concert. It features cobblers, bar cookies, brownies, carrot cake and ice cream. Desserts are $5; drinks are $1. All proceeds benefit the LSO.
This free workshop at BMoCA will consider how fungus complicates notions of technology by presenting an overview of mushrooms and mycelium. First, representatives from the Colorado Mycological Society will discuss the ways in which mushroom underground networks facilitate plant communication, and address general protocols for mushroom foraging in Colorado. Then, workshop attendees will get hands-on as they learn to use mycelium (the branching structures under mushrooms) as a technology to produce sustainable materials. Attendees will get to take home starter kits to make their own fungal notebook cover.
5 p.m. Friday, May 10, Museum of Boulder, 2205 Broadway, Boulder, 303-449-3464. Start your weekend off right with an after-hours visit to the Boulder Museum. Check out the current exhibits — about wolves, dinosaurs and a Nicaraguan potter — and then enjoy the view from the top of the museum with food, drinks and a silent disco presented by The Center for Transformative Movement. You also have the opportunity to experience a movement meditation session, a fusion of stretching, meditation and freeform dance that’s sure to leave you feeling energized, clear-minded and ready to make the most of the rest of your weekend. Free admission for museum members. General admission is $8-10, museumofboulder.org.
