Cambridge Graduate Orchestra invites you on a musical journey around some of our planet's most extreme environments as Dr Andrew Murray explains how life has adapted to these conditions.

In the first half we will perform Grieg's Hall of the Mountain King and Mussorgsky's Night on a Bare Mountain and you will learn how human physiology can be pushed to its limits to explore mountain peaks and the earth's poles.

In the second half, Dr Murray will speak about the challenges space travel presents to our bodies and illustrate some of the environmental challenges that would need to be overcome for life to evolve on other planets in our solar system. We will then play Holst's the Planet Suite and end with a world premiere of Chiron: the Teacher of Heroes by Rhiannon Randle, Cambridge Graduate Orchestra's composer in association 2017/18.

This concert is part of the Cambridge Science Festival and we will be supporting the British Heart Foundation with optional donations on our tickets and a stall during the interval. 100% of these donations will go to the BHF. We hope to see you there!
